Lies About Love

We are all liars, because
the truth of yesterday becomes a lie tomorrow,
whereas letters are fixed,
and we live by the letter of truth.
The love I feel for my friend, this year,
is different from the love I felt last year.
If it were not so, it would be a lie.
Yet we reiterate love! love!
as if it were a coin with a fixed value
instead of a flower that dies, and opens a different bud.

دروغ‌هایی دربارهٔ‌ عشق

همه دروغگوییم، چون
حقیقتِ‌ دیروز دروغ ِ‌ فردا است
چرا که حرف‌ها ثابت‌َ‌ند
و مینای ِ زندگی ما عین ِ‌ واقع است
عشق ِ‌ امسال َ‌م به دوستَ‌م
نیست همان حس ِ عشق ِ پارسال
دروغ بود گر جز این بود
اما تکرار می‌کنیم عشق! عشق!
گویی سکه‌ای است به ارزش ثابت
نه گلی که می‌میرد و غنچه‌ای دیگر باز می‌کند

I use a bit modified Persian orthography in poems/lyrics.
