Sleep brings no joy to me,

Remembrance never dies;

My soul is given to misery

And lives in sighs.

 

Sleep brings no rest to me;

The shadows of the dead

my waking eyes may never see

Surround my bed.

 

Sleep brings no hope to me;

In soundest sleep they come

And with their doleful imagery

Deepen the gloom.

 

Sleep brings no friend to me

to soothe and aid to bear

they all gaze scornfully

And I despair.

 

Sleep brings no wish to knit

my harassed heart beneath:

My only wish is to forget

In the sleep they call death.
