Kierkegaard's Song

I once had a darling, how she lingers And with her the song of fools I did sing But wrapped around my wedding finger I have only the tattoo of a ring Love divine has a face that stares me in The eye whenever I lay down to rest and every time I even begin To fade, her lovely smile swells my caged chest Hazel is the hue that haunts my poor heart In the hollow of my dead despair Her name is the whisper that tears me apart That relieves, if to whisper it I dare I once had a darling, how she loved me Forever and always she holds the key
