Do not Love ME

Do not love me, my friend
Like your shadow
Shadows fade in the evening

And I will hold you
Until the cock crows.

Do not love me like pepper
It makes my belly hot
I cannot eat pepper
When I am hungry.

Do not love me like a pillow
One would meet in sleep
And not see each other
During the day.

Love me like a dream
For dreams are your life
In the night
And hope in the day.
