How many years have passed this way since I was born anew.
How many seconds, hours, days but still I don’t know you?
How many mountains, rivers, streams, alike, but none the same?
How many words in thoughts and dreams but none your name contained?
I will wait for you, my love, my sun, the only one I seek
Until my youthful days are done and my body it grows weak,
Until the moon falls from the sky and the sun no longer burns,
Until the birds no longer fly and the earth no longer turns.
If I should pass before we meet and this, my body dies,
Your soul, my darling, mine still will seek; we’ll dance in azure skies.
