From Heike Monogatari

(From Heike Monogatari)

When did my heart learn such ways,
of late I think so longingly of
palace companions I once knew

The past, too, has vanished like a dream
My days by this brushwood door 
cannot be long in number

Kureimon-in was bathed in tears, 
overwhelmed by memories of the past and thoughts of the future

Pretty much sums up how I've been feeling these days...
