Come, and let us be strong Killed, we die as martyrs; Victorious, we‘ll live as heroes. Walk this rough path firmly, With eyes toward the sun So we may not see the skulls and serpents Among the rocks and thorns. I see your spirit quivering around me As a thirsty bird flickers Above a spring of water Guarded by a hungry serpent. That bird will remain flickering Until thirst destroys him Or falls into the grasp of a serpent Becoming its prey. No, this nightingale should remain alive And sing until dark comes, Until the end of the world, And keep on singing eternally. His wings should not be broken, Their motion removes The cloud from my heart. Thirst will exhaust him, And fear will kill him. See how time has left us in these ruins. In this place spring united us In a bond of love, And brought us together Before the throne of death. How beautiful was spring, How terrible is this winter! I am not worthy of a new life I am not strong enough for life A bird with broken wings Cannot fly in the spacious sky.

Have you ever seen her? Wearing black like a shroud See her gazing with glazed eyes Into a dying sun horizon Have you ever heard her? Screaming her lungs out Like a raven flock shrieks Piercing the ebony sky Cries for a dying life No words, only howls Tears for a wasted life No sweet, only salt Death wish woman, you are Surrounded by life, yet alone Death wish woman, come here Face your life, no escape Death wish woman, stay close Blind and deaf, muted Hands roped on the back Wait until this night dies And get touched by light Cries for a dying life No words, only howls Tears for a wasted life No sweet, only salt Death wish woman, you are Surrounded by life, not alone Death wish woman, stay here Face your life, don’t escape Death wish woman, stay close Tormented soul - take a step Choose your fate - open your eyes Inhale life - Breathe Death wish woman Life or death – a fragile balance Death wish woman One final step Or more to come

A barren woman, looked upon with disdain An enemy to her substantial man Detested and deserted He wishes her death. A tree grown in a cave doesn’t bear fruit She lived in the shade of life, a prisoner of misery Asking for a child to find comfort and consolation... The tree of the cave blossomed to bear fruit at last. Late at night she started her successive cry A cry of life's partition from life... A cry of continuance in the firmament of nothingness… As sun came out, an infant opened his eyes. He quivered and closed them for the last time The doctor took the child and on his cheeks fell tears Whispering: "He is a departing guest." The child passed away while the father was celebrating… Born at dawn and dead at sunrise... Born like a thought, he died like a sigh, and disappeared like a shadow He didn’t live to console and comfort his mother. His life began at the end of the night and ended at the beginning of the day. A pearl brought by the tide to the coast Returned by the ebb into the depth of the sea.... A dear guest illuminating the mother’s heart Whose departure killed her soul. Placed between her arms, she embraced him "You have come to take me away my child; You have come to show me the way that leads to the coast. Here I am, my child; lead me and let us leave this dark cave.” Sunrays penetrated the window curtains Falling upon two calm bodies lying on a bed Guarded by the profound dignity of silence Shaded by the wings of death. She was shrouded with her white wedding dress The child's coffin his mother's arms His grave her calm breast Two corpses carried in one coffin…

Stare as eyes uphold me And wait to see right through And curse me... The love has crippled you Shadows haunt the night Burning my disguise As I die Reaping through the truth Life becomes untrue Sin the last diversion My fate will be untouched Dismissed now, the anger of a fool Shadows haunt the night Forgive me as I die Taking a chance and take what you gain My soul it has no price Total release is out of harm’s way Until I can decide You punish me, can't you see, I’m not real Tears are flowing free, passing by, as I die
