Imi e dor – I miss you



Imi e dor

In spatele meu e o umbra
Imi e dor de umbra mea
In mintea mea e o viata
Pe care nu o pot avea.

Se ascund imagini calde si insorite
In ochii mei albastri,
Sa ma pot pastra
Cum eram, sunt si voi fi,

Copaci ale caror crengi
Se bat in zi senina
Frunze verzi ce cad
Incet la tulpina groasa,

Furnici ce sapa
Musuroaie pe langa banci
Pasarile nu se mai aud
Cantand trilurile primaverii

Doar tineri strident
Alergand si razand
In vartejul schimbarii
In focul apocaliptic

Constat ca iarna e
Mai lunga decat vara
Viata e prea scurta
Pentru o singura amintire

Biserici, goale de tineri,
Pline de batrani
Cluburi afumate de zgomote
Strazi cufundate-n liniste

Imi e dor de o raza arzatoare
Sa topeasca soaptele lumii
Ce tipa-n fluxul vietii
Doar povesti cu final fericit

Vise, sperante, iubiri pierdute
In materialitatea realitatii
Strigate ce se propaga
In universul tacut.

english version

I miss you,

A shadow behind me
I miss this shadow
It’s a new life in my mind
That I can’t have

Warm sunny hidden images
In my deep blue eyes
That I can keep myself
As I was, as I am and as I will be

Branches of trees
Chime in a sunny day
Falling green leaves
Slowly at the thick stem

Ants dig
Nests along the benches
No longer heard birds
That sing  spring trills,

Only loud youth
That run and laugh,
In the whirlwind of change
In an apocalyptic fire

I see the winter
Is longer than summer
Life is too short
For a single memory

Naked churches of  youth
But full of old people
Noisiness smokey clubs
Dip into silent streets

I miss a burning ray
To melt world whispers
That cries in the life flow
Only happy ending stories

Dreams, hopes, lost love
In the substantiality of reality
Difussed shouting
In the silent univers.
