Some time it will be ended,
Nothing more to see
When the dark has descended,
When you leave me.

Some time it will be over,
Nothing more to do
When the bees leave the clover,
When I leave you.

Some time it will be finished,
Nothing more to say
When the sun is diminished,
When light leaves the day.

Day vanished,
Light banished,
Hope finished,
Love diminished.
Now I am alone,
Pared to the bone.
