Would You?

Would You?

written by: Volodymyr Tymchuk


translated by: Kalpna Singh-Chitnis



I’m distant, where the sun rises,
and you look at the sunset. Between us –
are a wall of time, space, and agreements to overcome,
like a ransom to be paid at a wedding gate before seeing you.

Would you care to deny these when my loneliness,
longing for oneness, floods the night garden?
I close my eyes and see you look.
And feel the touch of your skin.

Я так далеко, там, де сонце сходить,
А ти стрічаєш захід, і між нами —
Стіна із часу, простору і згоди,
Подолана, немов весільна брама.

Ти можеш заперечити, чи схочеш,
Коли в саду самотньо ночі цілі?
Закрию очі, бачу твої очі,
І відчуваю доторки до тіла.
