Fly you fool!

.

Oh do what I never have had the courage to,

Run and fly and laugh and travel around the world,

Speak your heart now – whenever you can! – speak it true,

And happiness will rain upon you rich and pearled.

I know, I do! I should not be telling you this.

“Oh you are such a fool, could you only measure…!”

I can here hear her say, showing what I will miss,

But I cannot help it, your smile is my treasure.

Fly away little bird far yond the horizon,

No matter in which skies your soft feathers rise in,

No matter where from comes this glow so pure, so warm,

It is my guiding light, my lighthouse in the storm.

Fly far away but know still I am here for you,

Do all to be happy – what I could never do –

For that is my desire and, even were it lies,

Were this a poker face, that a clever disguise,

Hid I my tender pain behind a happy smile,

It matters not you see for I can play my part.

Despite my heavy soul, despite my sullen heart,

Your happiness is mine; rain will pass in a while…
