Sleeping Beauties

It was just pure coincidence that I’m currently reading Vikram Seth’s From Heaven Lake, and I received this lovely poem by the same author from a friend who’s far, far away in another continent right now.

All You who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above –

Know that you aren’t alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.
