I kept my head above the tide
So long it seemed a wonder.
Now everything’s begun to slide,
I feel I’m going under.
And I recall all my mistakes
And those I’ve treated badly,
And, when a wave above me breaks,
It leaves me coughing madly.
And, though I know there’s nothing wrong
In feeling such a feeling,
Each second’s now a minute long
And beauty’s unappealing.
But sadness has its time and place,
And so I greet its cold embrace.
