Lovers

The Kiss by Francesco Hayez

~

Where art thee my love and beauty,

So long have I waited in vain,

Within time that feels like an eternity,

In hope have I waited in pain.

_

When the sun rises in the Eastern sea,

I feel our day is drawing near,

Like a caged bird yearning to be free,

Free to fly to you without fear.

_

Will you not hurry my love and beauty,

Before my candle loses its light,

Please come to love and thus come to me,

Or at least come within my sight.

_

Remember that time is really cruelty,

For it flies in a pace of haste.

Thus we can no longer tarry in reality,

Cause life is like an endless race.

_

Yet I know with unfaltering certainty,

That like waves unrelenting,

You would take up this hard journey,

Just for the sake of our meeting.

_

Therefore I wait for love and for beauty,

For nothing else is worth this insanity.

~ESZ, James
