All You Who Sleep Tonight June 4, 2006

Posted by espritnoir in Random Thoughts....

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above –

Know that you aren’t alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

– Vikram Seth

The realization that somebody could be so thoughtful, and in an age so frightfully self-consumed, so concerned, to share “mental” and “emotional” space and time with somebody they care about, leaves me awed.

Ah, to love and be loved unconditionally. In all its forms : as lovers, family, as close friends. Undoubtedly, the greatest high one can achieve…
