Those Last Few Years of Helpless Pain
|Music: Fugue in G minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|Those last few years of helpless pain,|
Depression, sickness, sadness, blight:
Ah! Would I have them back again!
I could not such demand sustain
When what I had to do was plain,
To love you better, though in vain,
Are now for me what must remain:
I would that single chance regain
