Ashes

I saw it in my dreams
How flowers die in flames
Petals turn to ashes
So easily
 
Ashes, ashes on the snow
Warm air will lift them
Up to the heaven
Burnt to the end easily
 
It was an accidental burn
I was knocked off my feet,
Ashes
Our friends would be desperate
To scatter our ashes
From a cliff over the ocean
Ashes
 
I saw it in my dream
Paper burns in a fire
Unprotected letters, will end up
In a crimson-yellow trembled hell
 
From now on they will be ashes, forever
The star comes too early
Into the burnt tatters of the skies
Why am I still here?
 
It was an accidental burn
I was knocked off my feet,
Ashes
Our friends would be desperate
To scatter our ashes
From a cliff over the ocean
Ashes
 
Every thing is in place - flowers and the grass
You’ve burned, I am stil alive
 
I’m learning to be sad, while smiling
Too many sad stories
One way or another
We will be incinerated
 
It was an accidental burn
I was knocked off my feet,
Ashes
Our friends would be desperate
To scatter our ashes
From a cliff over the ocean
Ashes
 
Thanks!

"Ashes are always for them. The star exits too soon. The keys of heaven [lie] in [burning up]" ???????

There are 2 sentences:
1.Пепел - это для них навсегда,->From now on they will be ashes, forever
2.Слишком рано выходит звезда
В обгоревшие клочья небес -> The star comes too early/Into the burnt tatters of the skies (tattered clouds coloured by the setting sun are meant)

BTW, you got the rest OK. Regular smile

Yes, you restored the sense correctly.

Thanks to both of you for your help
I’ve adopted most of your suggestions
If am still missing something, please let me know

Anyway, is it ok? Understandable? Readable? Хорошо, что в английском нет падежей и родов... могли бы ещё быть попроще с временами глаголов... ну ладно , nobody is perfect:)

It’s always клочья (plural) it’s like “осколками в бездну”, hard to translate

Would you say “I am an ash, you are an ash” in English?

Tёплый воздух уносит вверх - you think warmth won’t work? It’s not really about the air, more like a feeling

IgeethecatIgeethecat    Sun, 06/05/2018 - 21:04

Ok, double up and article things - fixed
Ты пепел, я пепел - I just cannot comprehend it in English as ‘you are ashes l am ashes’
And the last one, you got the meaning, but where do you see a problem- в дорогах или в крематории?

IgeethecatIgeethecat    Sun, 06/05/2018 - 21:22

I don’t know, it’s just me... maybe I am listening to too much reggaeton

Btw, there are stories, not paths, I think this is why I used ‘one way or another’

IgeethecatIgeethecat    Sun, 06/05/2018 - 21:35

Final destination - do you mean “road to crematorium”?

IgeethecatIgeethecat    Sun, 06/05/2018 - 21:54

I guess I better pretend to be a Santa Clause to find my way in:)

Везде Вы бывали, всё Вы знаете;)

I am sorry, I just could not hold myself. It’s an old Russian joke, not appropriate and not funny , not at all
