I Apprehend You…
I apprehend You. The years pass by –
Yet in constant form, I apprehend You.
The whole horizon is aflame – impossibly sharp,
And mute, I wait, – with longing and with love.
The whole horizon is aflame, and your appearance near.
And yet I fear that You will change your form,
Give rise to impudent suspicion
By changing Your familiar contours in the end.
Oh, how I’ll fall – so low and bitter,
Defeated by my fatal dreams!
How sharp is the horizon! Radiance is near.
And yet I fear that You will change your form
