My bed and pillow are cold

Language: English

My bed and pillow are cold, 
My heart is faint with dread, 
The air hath an odour of mould, 
I dream I lie with the dead : 

I cannot move, 
O come to me, love, 
Or else I am dead. 

The feet I hear on the floor 
Tread heavily overhead: 
O Love, come down to the door, 
Gome, Love, come, ere I be dead : 

Make shine thy light, 
O Love, in the night; 
Or else I am dead.
