Daca Tu Ai Disparea / If You Were To Disappear

Dacă tu ai dispărea
Într-o noapte oarecare
Dulcea mea, amara mea
Aş pleca nebun pe mare.

Cu un sac întreg de lut
Şi-o spinare de nuiele
Să te fac de la-nceput
Cu puterea mâinii mele.

Lucru lung şi monoton
Să te înviez, femeie,
Eu, bolnav Hyperion
Hai şi umblă, Galatee!

Dacă tu ai dispărea
Fi-ţi-ar moartea numai viaţă
Dulcea mea, amara mea
Aş pleca în ţări de gheaţă.

Să te fac din ţurţuri reci
Să te-mbrac în promoroacă
Şi apoi să poţi să pleci
Orişiunde o să-ţi placă…

De-ai cădea într-adevăr
În momentul marii frângeri
Aş veni la tine-n cer
Să te recompun din îngeri.

Şi pe urmă aş pleca
Umilit şi iluzoriu
Unde este casa mea
O mansardă-n purgatoriu.

Dacă tu ai dispărea
Şi din râsu-mi, şi din plânsu-mi
Te-aş găsi în sinea mea
Te-aş zidi din mine însumi!

Adrian paunescu

If you were to disappear


If you were to disappear
One night, matters not, you see
Oh my sweet and bitter dear
I'd go crazy on the sea.

With a bag of molding clay
And a full back of fine twigs
to make you from scratch I may
With the power of my wings.

Long and monotonous toil
just to resurrect you, woman,
I, Pygmalion in turmoil
Galatea, once more human!


If you were to disappear
Full of life your death may be,
Oh, my sweet and bitter dear
To the lands of ice I'd flee.

From cold icicles to make you
Cover you in frost carefree
Then do what you want to do
and be who you want to be.

If indeed you'd fall from blessings
At the time of great tearing
I would come to you in heavens
And of angels make your being.

Then would be my time to leave
Humbled deeply and dramatic
Back where is my house, to grieve
In the purgatory - attic.

If you were to disappear
From my laughing, from my crying
Within me I'd find you, dear
From myself I'd build you sighing.

English version, Maria Magdalena Biela
