Els llums de Nadal (ii)

Christmas night, another fight
Tears we cried a flood
Got all kinds of poison in
Poison in my blood

I took my feet
To Oxford Street
Trying to right a wrong
Just walk away 
Those windows say
But I can't believe she's gone
 
When you're still waiting for the snow to fall
Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Up above candles on air flicker
Oh they flicker and they float
But I'm up here holding on
To all those chandeliers of hope

Like some drunken Elvis singing
I go singing out of tune
Saying how I always loved you darling
And I always will

Oh when you're still waiting for the snow to fall
Doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Still waiting for the snow to fall
It doesn't really feel like Christmas at all

Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Down where the sea and city meet
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

Those Christmas lights
Light up the street
Maybe they'll bring her back to me
Then all my troubles will be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on

Oh Christmas lights
Light up the street
Light up the fireworks in me
May all your troubles soon be gone
Oh Christmas lights keep shining on.

Un somni vençut però immortal…

Corren les nostres ànimes, com dos rius paral·lels,
fem el mateix camí sota els mateixos cels…
No podem acostar les nostres vides calmes,
entre els dos hi ha una terra de xiprers i de palmes.

            Cançó a Mahalta
            (Màrius Torres, Març 1937)

Des de la humilitat del meu retir,
escric poemes que il·luminen,
amb el teu nom,
la penombra dels meus capvespres.

Camp de batalla

No ha quedat res després de la llarga lluita.
Cap rastre, cap senyal.
Només el silenci que atravessa el camp de batalla en les llargues nits de la nostra pau.
El vent recòrre l’espai desolat que ara s’obre entre nosaltres.
Abandonarem les nostres posicions.
Acceptarem la derrota.
Potser algun dia recordarem plegats el llarg combat.
