Love and lovers are, of course, both strange and
without reason. Both of us are a question which has no
answer. You know how to touch my heart and use
words without which I cannot be entertained. You are
a song that requires no lips and without your heart
mine is afraid. Without each other we are but
strangers but we are, of course, lovers.

... And very much so, for I love you with a sincere

heart for unhappiness between us could never be -
a disagreement would be settled in minutes...
who said minutes? In seconds would be settled. Lovers?
Very much are we so. We adore one another? Yes, very
much is it so. In this world none are like us, not like
our hearts, nor our love. Nobody, except, of
course...lovers. Oh! nights...

Before I knew my lover I remained unaware of my

life, and felt not my years, for what meaning have
years when the heart is sad. What does age mean
when the heart neither feels happiness nor sorrow?
What meaning hath the world since it slips through
my fingers without my feeling it? But now it is over
I have the time to speak of it.

Don't suppose that, because I dreamt not , that I am

living a dream...never! Like you I never thought we'd
be unhappy with each other - a disagreement would
be settled in minutes.. who said minutes? In seconds
would it be settled. Lover? Very much are we so. We
adore one another? Yes, very much is it so. In this
world none are like us, not like our hearts,
nor our love.
