Victor Marie Hugo

(26 February 1802 – 22 May 1885 / Besancon / France)

Demain, dès l'aube...

Demain, dès l'aube, à l'heure où blanchit la campagne,
Je partirai. Vois-tu, je sais que tu m'attends.
J'irai par la forêt, j'irai par la montagne.
Je ne puis demeurer loin de toi plus longtemps.

Je marcherai les yeux fixés sur mes pensées,
Sans rien voir au dehors, sans entendre aucun bruit,
Seul, inconnu, le dos courbé, les mains croisées,
Triste, et le jour pour moi sera comme la nuit.

Je ne regarderai ni l'or du soir qui tombe,
Ni les voiles au loin descendant vers Harfleur,
Et quand j'arriverai, je mettrai sur ta tombe
Un bouquet de houx vert et de bruyère en fleur.

    I Just Want to Stare at You

    Angela, I just want to stare at you,
    ‘Cause of the power that you have on me.
    My heart starts racing at your view,
    Where my breathing patterns swing like a yoyo.

    Angelina, I just want to admire you,
    (Even though, I have great urge to kiss you) .
    You really turned my world around;
    You are my queen with the sparkling crown.

    I cannot help it; I cannot stop this fantasy,
    You are truly extraordinary and very fancy.
    Around you, my days become nights,
    Where I dream under the bright sun lights.

    My angel, as I look at you, I just want to exhale
    And inhale your beauty, your perfume,
    Your look, your smile and your soul;
    Without touching, I just want to dream.

    You are la crème de la crème, the cream of the cream,
    My mellifluous Queen, I simply want to dream.
    Innocently and religiously, I just want to stare at you,
    Blow kisses and throw flowers at your statue.
