Missolonghi - Poem by Bozhidar Pangelov

In English, the Greek Kalinihita (καληνύχτα) means Good Night

I won't be by you,
the lines of your palm.
I'm too heavy, my girl,
and you - a light one.
Let you pass smoothly
through all the doors
on the shoulders of everybody
let you step.
Like a sound of a love
to pass by.
I'm heavy, heavy, my girl
and my shadow is white.
And you can see
and to croon you can
only to the wind.
Where shall I stay
without disturbing.
Your dream.
