いねむり - Snooze

Because I'm older now,
I doze lately often, even during the day.
When I wake up, especially at dusk,
I feel shrouded in loneliness.
I snoozed, too, when I was younger,
from overwork in college days.
But I didn't wake up lonely, like this.

  1. I have also been having a very similar experience over the past year or so. I'm not "older" but in poor health, so there may be something in common. I'm sorry for your feeling of loneliness, which I also share. I hope you can take some small comfort in the fact that you have friends who care about you, however far away some of us may be.
