'A Love Larger Than Life' - Poem by Lindemberg Pereira da Silva

'Em ti a minha sorte,
A minha vida em ti;
E quando venha a morte,
Será morrer por ti.'
(Almeida Garret *)

'Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea -
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.'
(I Thought Of You - Sara Teasdale)

Stay on my way
Day by day,
Near to me,
My old and sweet memories.
My necessary evil
I want to be gifted by your company,
and to live
A love larger than life.

Don't walk away,
Don't tell my goodbye,
Don't leave me alone
I know you don't want
to see me crying.
Call me on the line,
Give me just one 'hi..'
Because by your side, I want to live
A love larger than life.

The eternity seems so far
When you are not near to me
Just together we can make it lasts
Forever, forever...
Time seems to fly
Each day is so lonely,
Since you were gone
And we are not
Together, together..

Since we've fallen apart
Our pieces are flying
In the wind.
Give us one more try
To put them together
And to rebuild
our dreams,
Because lying in your arms
I could sleep
While birds were flying and singing
All the evenings
I could dream
A love larger than life
(Forever...) .

on you.And when the death comes, it will be for you.'

    Wonderful yet again, Lindemberg. A very deep and moving poem.
    To improve the English of it you could change, 'I wanna be gifted by your company' to 'I want to be gifted by your company' and 'Don't say me goodbye' to 'Don't tell my goodbye' and 'Because lied in your arms' to 'Because lying in your arms'. I hope that helps you on your English.
