Poetry in Translation (CCXXI): Anonymous British Author, “Follow Your Path”

Follow your Path

Follow your Path


To G.A.
Follow Your Path
(British Anonymous)

Please, just follow your Calling,
In these sorrowful Moments,
Which are, often, so Brittle,
Yet, reflect our Love.

For I hope you will worship
Our fragile Illusions,
Though we live in the Present,
Just to steal passing Dreams.

As you reach newer Havens,
To forget our Passion,
I shall still be your Beacon
Lighting your Road ahead!

For I will guide your Yearning,
To attain new Horizons,
Whilst I’ll try to Extinguish
All I cherished in You.
