Maintenant (Engels vertaling)
Engels vertalingEngels (poëtisch)
Now that your eyes dare
to view me as an insolent dream.
Now that love has its place
next to me—I love you more than before.
Forsaking all comedies
without shame, I tell you very simply that
if love is to fetter our lives
now—let it be now.
And tomorrow our reunited souls
will love one another a little more each day—
amazed by all that binds us
one to another in this first love
Discovering at last the great mystery
of all those who one day, like us,
have lived as one on this earth
until forever in order to create love.
