Time flows by, and has passed like rivers

Since that hallowed moment we first saw each other,

Yet I'll never forget the love we had together,

You miracle, with large eyes and cold fingers.


Oh, come back! To bring words only you can inspire,

Watch over me so your gaze gently lingers,

Let me marvel at this moment that hungers

For those new words you wring from my lyre.

You're not even aware that when you're near

A great peace descends to quell my agony,

Just like the silence at the rising of a star;


If I could only see you like a child, smiling up at me,

All the suffering of my life would disappear,

My eyes rekindle, my soul grow within me.


(Translated by Corneliu M. Popescu)
