SLEEPLESS NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: They love me, and I have not made them happy
Last Line: And life is short and we shall soon be gone.
Alternate Author Name(s): Filsinger, Ernest B., Mrs.
Subject(s): Mortality


They love me, and I have not made them happy,
(Rush of the wind and river whistles moaning)
They love me and I cannot give them peace,
(The city shifts in sleep with a low groaning).

They love me and I watch their faces aging
And growing pinched as the slow winter dawn;
I give them nothing but a few sad poems,
And life is short and we shall soon be gone.
