"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

Sibiu. My City. My Love

I watched you sleep
Like only one that passionately loves you ever could.
I was there awake watching over you
When nobody was around
And no sounds were disturbing your deep sleep.
I was there when you opened your smiling eyes
And when hungry pigeons came to feed at your feet.
Sibiu. My city. My stone. My root. My love.
Te-am privit dormind
Cum doar cineva care te iubeste cu pasiune o poate face.
Am fost acolo vegiind asupra ta
Cand nu era nimeni in preajma
Si sunete nu deranjau somnul tau adanc.
Am fost acolo cand ti-ai deschis ochii zambitori
Si cand porumbei infometati au venit sa manance la picioarele tale.
Sibiu. Orasul meu. Piatra mea. Radacina mea. Dragostea mea.

  7. So you come from a walled town in the heart of Transylvania, one of the most powerful and prosperous fortress in Europe in the past. A place that can be understood, a beautiful town of narrow streets and passages, that can be known and loved and hated, blame it, resent it, and nothing changes, because in the end, you’re just another part of it. I whish one day I could visit Sibiu!

    • Thank you so much D. I hope you can visit Sibiu once too. I think you must have a city you love just the same too. Yes we are part of that city and the city is part of us… 🙂

      Thank you!
