Après/After

Après

Ce n’est jamais

Comme avant

On doit se

Reconnaître

Encore

Qui nous sommes

Evènements

Places

Choses

L’une

Après l’autre

Déjà vu

Journées

Répétées

Mais jamais

Les mêmes

Sauf pour

Des pensés

Qui nous

Consommes

Quand même

La prix de vivre

Dans la vie maison

On n’abandonne

pas le corps

Non

Pas

Maintenant


Traduction/Translation

After

Is never

Like before

We have to

Recognize

Again

Who we are

Events

Places

Things

One Moon

After another

Already seen

Days

Repeated

But never

The same

The same

Except for

The thoughts

Which

Consume us

The same

Price of living

In Life’s house

We’ve not

Yet

Given up

The body

No

Not

Now

    Hi Niliema,
    I’ve left a few replies but I don’t think they got posted. At any rate, I just wanted to say how much I am enjoying your poetry, you have such a wonderful way of words and thoughts. I think of you often.
