ALL THIS WILL END
Translated from the Ancient Greek
I who speak to you from beyond
I know things you don’t know.
A hug, a kiss
is what you crave. A human hand
and rescue you.
So reach out, cry, let the tears flow!
All this will end.
It will not be like this next year.
don’t weep. And this I say
to fix and mend
your broken heart: every tear
will make you new
and wash your ancient stains away.
