To Whom Shall I Speak Today?

To whom shall I speak today?
    I am laden with misery
    Through lack of an intimate …
Death is in my sight today
    Like the clearing of the sky,
    Like a man attracted thereby to
    What he knows not.

Death is in my sight today,
    Like the longing of a man to see home
    When he has spent many years held in
    captivity.
