Poem by Pedro Vergara Meersohn

(Translated from Spanish)

If the world ended
at this time.
If by some tragic reason
ceased to exist,
You and only you
occupy my thoughts.
And if all continues
with its usual pace,
You and only you
join me
in the morning,
in the afternoons and evenings
as you did yesterday and today
and as always will do.
Take me with you
and I'll take you
like a shadow
Following my footsteps,
that occupies my mind
persisting
like waves and wind.
You're so close to me,
so present that you and I
confuse us
as confused
lips in a kiss.
As confused
in a dream
love, running and flying.
