Umbra Gelida

(Lost in the Sun)

I rack my brains for the reason
Why things are like this.
Whenever I ask,
I learn less.

An evil veil shadows
The final truth.
How hard it is to rend it!
I wouldn't have believed it could exist so long.

Sometimes I almost
Drive out the confusion.
Evil returns and conquers me.
Through eyes not my own
I look at my face
I can't believe what I see there,
So great is my sorrow.

And, however far I run,
By that many miles the distance
To my life increases.
Through many shadows
I have always wandered
And shadows are cold.
