Für F.N.

By Emcybulska

You and I have travelled
   to the land of Hades,
   to the land of the dead,
   from which only few return.
Untergehen is such a lonely journey
Despite your heroic courage
   you drowned, 
like Ophelia.
Perhaps you tried too hard
   all by yourself
   in awesome solitude,
when I allowed other hands
   to hold mine,
   as I was emerging
   from the bowels of the earth
   and yours was the warmest.
