sleep eludes me tonight...

...vikram seth offers some i contemplate unconditional love.

"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."

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass.
