Unknown Future

Ungewisse Zukunft / Unknown Future / Un futuro incierto   

Schon spüre ich die Kälte des Todes
Wie die Tränen aus der Vergangenheit
Wehmut betört mein tränendes Herz
Wo Hoffnung fällt wie sterbende Bäume
So zerfließt auch Gegenwart ins endlose Nichts
Traurige Zeit, fallendes Herbstlaub
Ungewisse Zukunft, wie Wolken aus Blei
Erinnerungen wie herrliche Träume



Already I feel the chill of death
Like some tears from the past
Melancholy enchants my bleeding heart
Where hope is like dying trees
The presence  melts to endless nothingness
Sad time, falling autumn leaves
Uncertain future as leaden clouds
Memories like wonderful dreams



Ya siento el frío de la muerte
Tan como algunas lágrimas del pasado
Melancolía encanta mi corazón sangrante
Donde la esperanza dilue, mueren los árboles
La presencia se funde en la nada 
Triste tiempo, la caída de las hojas de otoño
Un futuro incierto como nubes plomizas
Recuerdos como sueños maravillosos

    Bonjour Gert! La realité est vraiment difficile aujour'hui, c'est facile to perdre l'espoir. Il y a toujours l'espoir, parce que un temps qui va vraiment mal precède un temps de grand changement. Let's hope that the change will see a change in humanity's warmer heart toward one another. Nicely written, and thank you for your kind comments on my latest. Alles Gute! Caroline.

    The unknown definitely can bring us down-- and I definitely felt that upon reading this poem of yours, Gert-- only goes to show how talented you are in bringing your point across... I hope though that you are doing good and not feeling down... ingat ulit! --nikko :)

    Gert, I can't say that I enjoyed this as it is so sad, but it's reality and we all must experience this at one time or another. I agree, memories are like wonderful dreams and we will always be grateful for them. Goes to my Favs. List. Always, Annalise
