By your Side

Versões: #1#2
Keep quiet, my heart *
Don't be afraid
I am a friend
that speaks to you.
 
I have waited and I have hoped
for that moment that perhaps, isn't coming
and that will perhaps simply pass by
Or maybe even never happens
 
I look back
on a wonderful time
You were the anchor
And the cradle of my existence
You fought
And shared every moment with me
I am proud
To still be beside you now
 
I catch an image of you
And close my eyes
And the rooms are empty no longer
Let all else rest in peace
I catch an image of you
And this single glimpse of time
Remains in my metaphorical possession **
Where heaven will not get it back
 
You came to me
Before the very first toll struck
When the sand in the hourglass seemed inexhaustable
You have lived
In every storm you fought beside me
You never demanded anything
You only gave and bestowed
 
You've showed me
What it is that's really important
You conjured a smile upon my face
With your silent gaze
Without a word
And surely, full of love and life
You have given me so much of yourself
 
I look back
on a wonderful time
You were the anchor
And the cradle of my existence
You fought
And shared every moment with me
I am proud
To still be beside you now
 
I catch an image of you
And close my eyes
And the rooms are empty no longer
Let all else rest in peace
I catch an image of you
And this single glimpse of time ***
Remains in my metaphorical possession
Where heaven will not get it back
 
I let you go
And I wish you all the luck of this world
In this single moment in time ****
You are the only thing that's worth it
Let go
And just go to sleep
I will forever be by your side

Comentários do autor:

* "my heart" is also a pet name. The sentence can also be interpreted "Lay still, loved one"
** The word metaphorical is a bit of a rough equivalent but seems to get the right feeling across.
*** Augenblick is a word that suggests an instance in time, but it also has the feel of looking with your eyes into a moment.
**** the word Augenblick is also used here in German. I felt it unnecessary to emphasize the "visual" aspect of it in this specific line.

I use a certain amount of stars as markers throughout my translation, and each time these stars show up, if you look at my translation comments, the number of stars on a line match up with the number of stars to it's relevant comment. I try to offer as much insight as I can, point out possible meanings, indicate difficulty in phrasing some specific phrases in English, show you things like plays on words, and also point out uncertainties so that other translators can see where I'm coming from.

great job and thanks for translation. Not sure if you're aware of the footnote feature, but I find it to be really helpful. Like you, I also utilized a similar system for referencing footnotes.

Thanks so much. Hmm.. I didn't notice the feature. I'll see that I use it in the future...
