Will we ever be together again?

by Walter William Safar

When you left, my one and only,
All that was left behind was the echo
Of your angelic voice,
Will we ever be together again?

Since you've left,
This restless souls is aimlessly wandering the path of dreams,
Like an accursed shadow, looking for a new beginning
At the end of the road,
Will we ever be together again?

While I am lying in my dark void,
The loving soul is unfaltering
In its search for you in hazy and scattered mornings,
Like the harmonious beat of a street performer's sad ballad,
Knocking at the door to your heart,
Will we ever be together again?
(Wise people say that the soul is more capable
in leading the body to its goal than the mind.)

My passion
That I used to braggingly wave in front of the world's eyes,
Like the flag of the most powerful empire - invincible love,
Now, as an old dying man, waits in the dark void
To hear your warm, gentle voice full of love,
Will we ever be together again?

Like a colorless warrior,
I am waiting in the dark void for a new battle,
To defeat fate with fate,
Because it is noble and idyllic to die for love,
Yet more noble to live from love,
Will we ever be together again?

Although I wandered all my life,
Faithfully serving the restless spirit,
Now I patiently await your return,
Always in the same place,
Just like a prairie flower
Waits for a droplet of heavenly dew,
Will we ever be together again?

To a poet without passion,
Each new step is closer to death than to life,
Because a spirit without passion is like ashes in the soul.
When I look for comfort in the bottle,
Memories are my only sincere company,
Because comfort is short-lived
In the seductive eyes of the ladies of the night,
Will we ever be together again?

There is no shame in being born without love,
But it is shameful to die without having loved,
And here in this dark void lies a man
Who is ready to die for love,
Will we ever be together again?

In this dark void,
I am battling dark apparitions,
It is shameful to die without hope,
And everything makes more sense this way,
Both love and suffering
And life and death,
Will we ever be together again?
