Hour 13: Villanelle – A Friend to Guide Me

Villanelle – A Friend to Guide Me

 

Can I greet you as a friend

I may not recognise, but will know you

when you come for me at the end.

 

Going where others cannot send

anything other than their love.

Can I greet you as a friend?

 

Will I leave broken hearts that will never mend;

when they learn I have gone away with you,

when you come for me at the end.

 

Just one, or do all shadows rend

souls from flesh to be taken in love.

Can I greet you as a friend?

 

I don’t know yet; I won’t pretend

that I will ever understand you

when you come for me at the end.

 

Within the crowd how can you blend,

when I know that you and I are bound in love.

Can I greet you as friend,

when you come for me at the end.
