Grant Me a Smile
Unable to see you for just one day
Suffices to lade my heart with sorrow.
I had lived a rubbish life for many years,
Until one day: much grief for the morrow.
You came into my existence as a gale
For far-off melancholy to surge.
I had already forgotten my karma;
You had the heart me to fancy you to urge!
Which dreamers don't later wake up?
I have felt anguish from now on rise high.
You arrived then you left, I knew it; but
Why I got infatuated with this fleeting tie!
I will content myself with life's vision
Although in a twinkling I consent to.
You break off, I will go into eternity;
A short moment is enough to love you.
Let me come to see you this evening!
And please grant me a smile, however!
I will embrace into my sleep my dearest
Whom I will still cherish forever...
