Naive

Promise me that I will live forever –

For one long and truly happy day,

When my world, free of all sorrows,

Shall glow and

You’ll be once again in love with me

/

Promise me that I will soar forever,

Shining like a star above the sea,

My reflection dancing, and then drowning

In night waters:

Promise one last time to dance with me

/

Promise you will stay with me for good –

Until the time I close my eyes to sleep:

Whisper to my slowing heart the name

Chomolungma –

The name of my life, a lonely dream

/

When the dusk’s blue arms embrace my sun, I

Promise that I will not be afraid:

I have lived today the blissful lie called

‘Forever’ –

I won’t stay to watch it lose

Its naive face
