Your face, so pale
She sees
Seems unfamiliar
Yet she loves you

Her dear, your eyes
So sunken, tired
They look through her

Lean on her, Love,
Your youth left you in a day
Rest here
Her arms shall protect you

Your body, trembling so
She shall give to you her strength
Needy of it will you be tomorrow
Who across her back your sword you break
Yet she loves you.
