Letters: Chopin & Titus Woyciechowski

09 March 2018



I have a kind of presentiment that you will come, and if you do I shall have complete faith in dreams, for I am always dreaming of you. It so often happens to me to mix up day and night, to live in dreams and to sleep during the day – indeed it’s worse than being asleep, for my feelings are still awake, but instead of renewing my strength in such a day-trance, as I would if I were really asleep, I feel only more tired and exhausted. Keep me in your affection, I beg you.
