Att vara den jag är / To be what I am

Jag har bara en önskan kvar
att vara den jag är – med lust
och inte vad jag kunde vara

Nog och nöjd med mig själv
om så utan hopp om ett du:
den hjärtesökta själsfränden


I have but one wish left:
to be who I am – with joy
blank on what I could be

Happy enough with myself
even if it is without a hope
to find a like-minded “you”
my heart-sought soulmate




There are things no one can ever tell you
is “a point of view” – and if that happens,
it is simply the end of the common road
and you will leave without a farewell and
your only effort will be not to let remorse
and bitterness catch you, others to blame.
