Helga Deen ,1925-1943

Helga Deen  (1925-1943)   (Sentanka)

Mit achtzehn ermordet
Helga Deen im KZ Sobibór
Nur Tagebuch und Briefe

War alles was von ihr blieb
Ihr Andenken aber bleibt 


Murdered at eighteen
Helga Deen at Sobibór 
Only letters and diary

Was all that remained of her
But her memory remains


Helga Deen en Sobibor
Asesinado a dieciocho años
Sólo cartas y un diario

Fue todo lo que quedaba 
Pero su memoria sigue siendo

A KISS

A KISS (3 Tanka)

it was just a kiss
two kids on a carousel
pipe organ playing
ups     downs    around and around
a kiss I cannot forget

we kissed at midnight
christmas eve and mistletoe
good friends surrounding
i had dreamt of such a kiss
all through high school    and beyond

we kissed    then she laughed
i knew it was innocent
married    both of us
but what a surprise i had
she had dreamt the same as I
