In the desert of my solitude, oh
love of my life, quiver

the shadows of your voice

the mirage of your lips

 

In the desert of my solitude,

beneath the dust and ashes of distance

bloom the jasmines and roses of your proximity

 

From somewhere very close,

rises the warmth of your breath

smouldering in its own aroma,

slowly, bit by bit.

 

far away, across the horizon,
glistens drop by drop

the falling dew of your beguiling glance

 

With such tenderness, O love of my life,

on the cheek of my heart,

has your memory placed its hand right now

 

that it looks as if (though it’s still the dawn of adieu)

the sun of separation has set

and the night of union has arrived
