SILVER TEARS

SILVER TEARS

You say that you have long since
turned off all the lights but one,
the light beneath which
I have kissed you
while pearly dew glittered
all around us,
a breeze was blowing,
and the birds were not silent,
but singing at the top of their lungs.

You say that you have long since
turned off all the lights but one,
beyond which everything was freshened
with tears gone by,
which still shine
outside the door of the old house
like fairy silver tears.

When you think you're alone,
know that a calm person
is still walking towards your home
with calm and measured steps,
the person of your poet's
barefoot solitude.

A long, long time has passed
since we used to see each other often,
and since all the lights were glowing
on earth
and in the skies,
and since the moon was,
with its expression of dominance,
power
and enchantment,
self-consciously sitting up there
- surrounded by the stars
that give him the eternal magic of youth –
and watching
the fairy silver tears
sliding down your face,
as if you were the saddest woman
under the heavenly dome.

You say that you have long since
turned off all the lights but one,
beyond which love was
so impatient and capricious,
in the desire
to go from hand
to hand
of all those who are in love
around the world,
so they, too, would feel the love
I feel for you.
