Perhaps I should learn a language
And speak to my wife
In elementary phrases
Like her elementary piano chords.
Then after so many years
Of marriage and silence,
Her loneliness and mine
Waltz into the same room
As though we've never met
And share the first new
Meaningful words of love
In a hybrid language
Neither one of us speaks.
This poem has not been translated into any other language yet.I would like to translate this poem
this poem tells me you can still be lonely even when in a relationship
But also, I think, that love triumphs, that love finds a way to communicate after all.
Yes, exactly, particularly after many years together.
