THIS NIGHT
bamboo # 163 - anis 25.09.01

this night - was not - like the other nights - this night - was long - we were asleep - and had evil dreams -- in the old days - we used to watch - the moon - in its beautiful perfection - in the old days - you used to take my hand - when it got dark - but this night - was not - like the other nights - i saw you - and you were afraid of me -- these are not - the good times - and they are not - the bad times - only a long night - you wanted to call me - but your voice - was too feeble - you wanted to hold me - but your arms - were too heavy - many things - you wanted to promise me - but you were distracted -- tonight i touched you - in a dream - i approached you - and took you close - to my side - until i cried - because it was - the night of tears - and someone has to cry them - if you cannot do it - then i will take your part - to mine -- where will you go now - with all those people? - will you be happy? - perhaps you'll visit me - on my farm - but perhaps - i will not want it - a lot has happened - you did not find - the tears - your heart - was hard - yet this is - the time of tears - do not fear - the tears - neither those - nor these - many things you thought - but this was not me - it was you -- below us lies - the other world - the dream world - it is more beautiful - than the upper world - for it does not hide - it is faster - than the upper world - for it does not lie - still you don't - believe a word - still i talk - and if it wasn't for you - I would not talk -- what shall become now? - will you be happy? - were they many mistakes - you had to admit - to arrive here? - and did you - have to leave behind - many a fear? -- i shall not speak more? - alright - so you have decided - as i have decided myself - for this blood - shall not have been shed - in vain! - no way! - if you only knew me! - you would understand me - like i understand you -- this night was long - and full of dread - i wanted to wake up - but i couldn't - again and over again - i searched for you - in the debris - showing your picture - to all the people around - but nobody saw you - only yesterday - we made love - and today - nobody saw you -- not in vain - this has happened - war i will make - for you - fight i will - for you - and whoever stands in the way - will be defeated - for it is war - and i a warrior -- do understand me! - he who finds no tears - after this night - is living dangerously - it was not - like the other nights - there follow - the good times - or there follow - the bad times - and finally it's up to us -- so go now - do not hold - me back - you did not see her - and i am searching still - you only wanted - to talk - and to sit - and to eat - and to sleep - but i do search still - never so strong - like today - never so determined - so do not - fear me - and do not - fear the tears - fear only - your heart - when it does not want - to like you anymore -- this night - was different - from the other nights - there will come women and men - with arrows and spears - struggle they will - with proud eyes - they will stand up - and gain a victory - and they'll be braver - than their fathers - and their mothers - many they will be - i won't hold them up - and you won't - hold them up either - for this night - was not - like the other nights
