Birthday humming


I was pushed into the deep,
one stormy winter night.
I fell down toward the earth,
I was fragile and blind.

Everyone admired me,
with teary-smiley eyes,
they heeded my every step,
they heeded all my sighs.

I was trying to destroy
the sadness of this world.
Painting all the days with gold,
I was their sweet blue bird.

But the moments fade away.
Nothing remains the same.
I was drifted by the tides,
afloat without an aim.

Time goes by relentlessly,
the sky is far above...
Infinity is a flash,
but it's enough to love.

Innocent eyes looked at me,
smiling with endless trust,
and I knew I'm on my place,
I found my path at last.

If sometimes still, I feel lost,
they make me brave and strong,
I just take a breath, and shrug,
then lead my boat along.



























Ilyen az élet
A mélybe löktek védtelen
Egy hűvös hajnalon,
Zuhantam én a föld felé
Sebezhetőn, vakon.

Csodálva néztek annyian,
Örömtől könnyesen,
És csüngtek mind kíváncsian
Az első léptemen.

És próbálgattam egyre én
Világuk börtönét,
Aranyszínnel festettem át
A bánat bús ködét.

De megfakult a pillanat,
Sodort a nagy folyam.
A lusta hullámok között
Vergődtem céltalan.

Az idő szállt könyörtelen,
Rég messze tűnt az ég.
Egy perc csupán a végtelen:
Szeretni épp elég.

És tiszta, ártatlan szemek
Néztek kíváncsian,
Már tudtam végre, mit tegyek,
Ez volt az én utam.

S ha tévelygek is néha még
A vágtató vízen,
Csak vállat vonok könnyedén,
S hajóm tovább viszem.
