I borrowed a poem from a twilight blogger.
Because it was the first time I noticed the poem - though the poet is well known.
Because I wanted to share it with you, I attempted this translation:
"You are like a miracle
That was gifted once to me"
I love you beyond the words, the fence
I didn't think that I'd be able to say this big word.
"You said it before"."Yes? To you, maybe"
"I don't remember"
"Anyway I am saying it to you now, breathless,
I love you breathless"
It's long since we promised each other
to write from neighboring rooms
to send letters each hour
as they were medical records
just that ours would be records
From time to time the news channels should
broadcast a love story on a couple
randomly chosen, but it has to be typical
like we are...
Have I ever asked: are you typical?
Yes? Good. I feel reassured.
We can talk openly,
We can share our secrets.
It is so hard to find
a typical, healthy love nowadays.
