Sympathy for a Friend

Hush now my darkling, dusk is upon us.
O my sad-eyed wonder, rest your poor heart;
Turn every thought towards this quietus
And let your sorrows and your conscience part
Rest calmy for tonight I am with you
My hand is here for you to hold upon
For even if all the world forsakes you
I shall still be here from this moment on.
So drink deeply now from this dark chalice
And fade away with me to nothingness;
Let all your sorrows succomb to a kiss
As if life was made of nothing less.
So lay down your despair and softly hush
For now my dear the night is upon us.
