Jorge Luis Borges - Despedida (English translation)

Spanish

Despedida

Entre mi amor y yo han de levantarse
trescientas noches como trescientas paredes
y el mar será una magia entre nosotros.
 
No habrá sino recuerdos.
Oh tardes merecidas por la pena,
noches esperanzadas de mirarte,
campos de mi camino, firmamento
que estoy viendo y perdiendo...
Definitiva como un mármol
entristecerá tu ausencia otras tardes.

Farewell

Between my love and I shall be raised
three hundred nights like three hundred walls
and the sea shall be a magic between us.
 
There shall not even be memories.
Oh evenings deserving of pity,
hopeful nights of looking upon you,
fields of my road, firmament
that I am seeing and losing . . .
Definitive like a marble
your absence shall sadden other evenings.
