LIGHT AND LOVE
You covered your mourning face with a black veil.
They say that you are sad,
that the birds no longer sing next to the window
where we used to dream of
which was so vividly reflected in the eyes of the birds
who found their little home
in the buds of your wild roses.
Forgive me, my dear,
for not being with You now.
I know that your mourning veil is weaved from sorrow
and watered by salty
My golden one, don't give our love slip away
into night's embrace,
throw away your mourning veil into the night's embrace,
let a glowing star from the sky shine on our love,
because light cannot be against love,
light must be for love,
because it doesn't harden hearts,
but soften them;
Because it does not battle like darkness,
but comes into hearts like a dove.
