For All the Years I've Wandered Through My Life
Music: Fugue in F Minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|For all the years I've wandered through my life|
Inept at everything that matters most,
Fearing without thinking of the end,
Turning into dreams the loves I've lost;
Years as sister, daughter, mother, wife,
One beneath the selves the heavens send,
Neither changed nor changeless, tempest tossed
Even in dark worlds too deep for strife.
