Happiness (La felicidad)

by

Manuel Acuņa



A blue sky full of stars

shining in immensity;

a bird in love

singing in the forest;

for atmosphere the aromas

of the garden and the orange blossom;

next to us the water

sprouting from the spring

our hearts close,

our lips much more,

you rising to heaven

and me following you there--

that is love, my life,

That is happiness! ...


Cross with the same wings

the worlds of the ideal;

to drain all the joys,

and all the haste that is good;

from dreams and happiness

back to reality,

waking up among the flowers

of a spring lawn;

both of us looking at each other,

the two of us kissing some more,

that is love, my life,

That is happiness ...!
