Faço pedidos
a estrelas que não vão cair.

Seu nome nos meus lábios,
gravado no meu coração,
escrito na minha pele
com caneta esferográfica
debaixo desse mesmo céu,
dessa mesma lua.

Me pergunto se
vamos caber nos sonhos um do outro
algum dia.

---

I wish upon stars
that won't fall.

Your name on my lips
engraved on my heart
penned on my skin
under this very sky
this very moon

wondering if
we'll ever fit
each other's dreams.

  2. Stars never fall, unfortunately everything else may. Love the longing expressed in your poem!

  3. Martin, thanks for such a lovely comment. You've actually been a little exotic and over circumstantial - everybody knows 'stars' don't fall. You might enjoy this reading, by the way. Make a wish - it's shooting stars season

    Kiss you babe. =*

  6. A wish, like a dream, is never a wasted thing, Kenia my dear. The names we carry in our hearts and on our lips are more our own than those our parents gave us.

    I feel so much at home in your poems, with their sweet sadness.

  21. Such a soft and gently poem full of wistful longing...just lovely!

    I was thinking I would love to hear it in Spanish. I've been on sites that give the option of listening to the poem read aloud. Not sure how they do that, but I wonder if you've ever thought about trying it?

  23. Beautiful poem.

    "Your name on my lips
    engraved on my heart
    penned on my skin
    under this very sky
    this very moon."
    I liked this stanza particularly.

  24. Enchanting and bittersweet as is all fantasy love.

  25. Haha ... as there is an astronomer inside me I immediately distinguish real stars from shooting stars or falling stars. They are just straw fires. But I think I didn't get you wrong ;-)
