"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Luna Amara / The Bitter Moon – In Tine Tu / You in Yourself

“In the eye of a child,
In a subtle smile,
In the laughter of an old man that humbly prays
In a coffee from a too hard night
In a holway with asylum smell…
In a kind of a kiss,
In an unknown thought,
In a cup of tea and a mute good bye
You will find out, you will see…
In an innocent face
In a too kind gesture
In a pointless day that passes too slow
In the battered hands of an absent father
In a shooting star
In the aching wound
In  shoulders stretched for surprise
you will find out, you will see…
You will find out and you will know and you will see
You will hear and touch and believe
You will scream your surprise and so, it will be yours!
In a game with the glass
In a pontless running away,
In separations and the dirty game
In silence and in the voice that asks
And the hand that holds a newspaper
In a moment of haste
In the blind world
In the mouth that wants to sip
You will find out, you will see…
You will find out and you will know and you will see
You will hear and touch and believe
You will scream your surprise and so, it will be yours!
And all that is covered in smoke,
you try to hide….
Anyway… it’s too late to do it now…
Isn’t it?”

“Intr-un ochi de copil,
Intr-un zambet subtil,
Intr-un ras de batran ce se roaga umil,
Intr-o cafea, dintr-o noapte prea grea
Si intr-un hol cu miros de azil…
Intr-un fel de sarut,
Intr-un gand nestiut,
Intr-o cana de ceai si-un ramas bun mut,
Vei afla, vei vedea…
Intr-un chip inocent,
Intr-un gest prea atent,
Intr-o zi fara rost care trece prea lent,
Cu mainile muncite si obosite ale unui tata absent…
Intr-o stea cazatoare,
In rana ce doare,
In umeri stransi a mirare,
Vei afla, vei vedea…
Ai sa afli si-ai sa stii si-ai sa vezi,
Ai s-auzi si-ai sa atingi si-ai sa crezi,
Ai sa-ti urli mirarea si-asa, va fi a a ta!
Intr-un joc de pahar,
Intr-o fuga-n zadar,
In despartiri si jocul murdar,
In tacere si glasul ce cere
Si mana ce strange-un ziar,
Intr-o clipa de graba,
In lumea cea oarba,
In gura ce vrea sa soarba,
Vei afla, vei vedea…
Ai sa afli s-ai sa stii s-ai sa vezi,
Ai s-auzi s-ai sa atingi s-ai sa crezi,
Ai sa-ti urli mirarea s-asa, va fi a a ta!
Si tot ce e-nvelit in fum,
Incerci sa te ascunzi…
Oricum… E prea tarziu s-o faci acum…
Nu-i asa? …”
