"Wanderer" by Vasily Perov.

Song of a Wanderer

Tell me the reasons why;
my life is just a sigh
within thy breath.
Tell me the reasons why;
I can no longer die
If it’s thee I miss.

I can no longer kiss
the watchful moon goodbye.
I can no longer hug
The sleepy sun passing by.
Tell me a reason why;
I can no longer find
a pattern on my mind
a star within my sky.

Tell me a reason why;
I can no longer think,
or turn or twitch or blink
without thine shadow nigh.
Tell me a reason why;
I can no longer breathe,
I  can no longer sigh,
or keep thee on my sight
or kiss the morning light
that thou cast off thine eye.
Tell me a reason why;
I must bid thee farewell,
& bear a burning hell
To only tell thee “Hi”.

& wander even yet —
remember where we met?
& where we met those eyes,
& where we sighed those sighs.
& wander even yet —
So hard those times we let,
much as recurring goodbyes;
So hard that it never dies.

Tell me a reason why;
my life is just a sigh
my life is just a breath.
Tell me a reason why;
I shall no longer die,
If it is thou I’m with.
& wander even yet —
Until there is no grief or sorrow or regret.
& wander even yet —
Until we beat together those demons that I met.
& wander even yet —
Out of this weary world of pain & toil & sweat.
& wander even yet
this life in just one sigh
— my life is just one breath.
Need I no reasons why,
For it is thee I’m with,
& I can never die.
So long as much I wander,
I shall not wonder why.
