I Breathe Where Your Heart Beats (extr.)
I breathe where your heart beats,
You know; what good is
Staying here if you leave me,
And live if you go away?
What do you want me to become
If I can no longer hear your steps?
Is it your life or mine
Who leaves? I don’t know.
What will I say to the wistful wood
Who used to lit your softness?
What will I answer the rose
Asking : “Where is my sister?”
What will I do, alone, wild,
Without you, of the day and the skies,
Of my kisses without your mouth
And of my tears without your eyes?
(Victor Hugo « Les Contemplations »)
