Now I no longer believe in you.

I gaze at you gazing at me.

Breath, sense, abyss, one God only.

I gaze at you blindly, being in your gaze.

You are the only one.

 

Now I must try hard

to believe in this gentle-cruel world of yours

& in my fleeting soul

to stop them from disappearing without a goodbye

 

like late-season snow in the early sun.

Zdaj vate več ne vérujem.

Zrem te, ko me zreš.

Dih, smisel, brezno, en sam Bog.

Zrem te slepo, ko v tvojem zrenju sem.

Ti si edini.

 

Zdaj moram s trudom

vérovati v ta tvoj nežno kruti svet

& svojo bežno dušo,

da brez slovesa ne izgineta

 

kot pozni sneg na zgodnjem soncu.
