What a strange sadness
I came back to what had been my home,
And a stranger I thought I knew
Held the door.
I said who I was
and I was shown in
tolerated for a time, but not welcome.


What a strange sadness;
These things I knew so well,
whose love I'd like to tell.
What grief can be added
That I already didn't feel?
