Galakion Tabidze – The farther you stand
translation by Lika Sharashidze.
The farther you stand, more I delight,
I love the me, that exist in you, with all its might,
As untouchable as the ray of sun,
As far as the dream of mine, of us being one,
You might be just some shard of my imagination,
But still, I would rather be wrong,
Because one that starves for white angel’s salvation,
Is the emptiness of my heart.
Let this heart be burned by my odd courtship,
So I could believe in my own love and courting,
Let my tears fill the sea-measure,
So I could believe in my own delirium…
