1. Closeness ~


When we were boys
You were
so much closer.
We could almost
touch You,
we thought.

There were days
when You
were as close as
the warm gold
of candles
or the shafts
of grass
on the path
near the
lake.

1. Nähe

Als wir Jungen waren
warst Du ganz nahe bei uns.
Dich konnten wir fast berühren,
dachten wir.

Da gab es Tage
an denen Du uns
genau so nah warst
wie das warme Gold von Kerzen
oder das Unkraut
auf dem Pfad
entlang des Sees.
