Sombreness / Desolation / Beyond My Grave

[English]

Volume: The Seconds of Teardrops

Sombreness

And it rains.

I see teardrops

Dripping down

From turbid clouds.

The world cries

Above people;

And shrouds in sadness

Mute thoughts.

Volum: Secundele Lacrimilor

Melancolie

Şi plouă.

Văd căzând,

Din norii tulburi,

Lacrimi multe.

Pământul plânge

Peste oameni,

Şi-nvăluie-n tristeţe,

Gânduri mute.

Volume: The Seconds of Teardrops

Desolation

And gentle waters flowing drip by drip,

In golden drops enclothe me;

Thousands of waterfalls purring under the sky,

Beneath the moonlight, my eyes drown.

Flower petals tilt over

Under the weight of due drops,

And my heart kneels

Under the teardrops, too many and too heavy.

Water strings flow in torrents

From the leaves, too green and alive;

Too alive for my eyes to be able to look at

From under the thousands of teardrops I cry.

Îndurerare

Şi ape moi, rând după rând, căzând,

În stropi de aur mă îmbracă.

Cascade mii, sub cer torcând,

Sub clar de lună, ochii mi-i îneacă.

Petale de flori se apleacă

Sub boabe de rouă prea grele,

Iar inima-mi îngenunche

Sub lacrimi prea multe şi grele.

Fire de apă curg şiroaie

De pe frunzele verzi şi prea vii,

Prea vii pentru ca ochii mei să mai poată

Să le privească de după lacrimi mii…

Beyond my grave

Don’t call me in the middle of the night,

Don’t let your waves of soul reach me,

Don’t cry my name in pain for more than just a while,

Don’t try to love someone that can no longer be.
