“All You Who Sleep Tonight” by Vikram Seth

All You Who Sleep Tonight

All you who sleep tonight

Far from the ones you love,

No hand to left or right,

And emptiness above–

 

Know that you aren’t alone.

The whole world shares your tears,

Some for two nights or one,

And some for all their years.

 

– Vikram Seth, from All You Who Sleep Tonight, 1990 Vintage International edition
