To My Wife


Solemnly, I swear
I'll live forever by your side
To the endpoint of my adulthood,
Through the barricades of happiness,
Emptiness, sadness and joy;
Till time comes
When old age runs out of its prime
Ready to bid farewell
To the other side
Of heavenly morn.

I haven't said
I love you near enough,
But let the future be my testimony
And all these wrinkles show
The strong emotion and feeling
Till the heart runs dry of reason
And my spirit, the nourishment;
Ready to bid farewell.
Loving you still
After my time of death.

(For Noami)

Salve magna parens frugum Saturnia tellus,
Magna virûm! tibi res antiquæ laudis et artis
Aggredior, sanctos ausus recludere fontes.
