Song of a man [Cântecul unui om]
What I was once I am no more...
But I regret what I am now
And that I've failed, I disavow,
To be the bard I was before...
And when I hated I was hailed
And when I loved I received strife...
But I've been singing all my life
The One who on the cross was nailed...
My former hopes are but a dream,
I've gathered what I wished not for...
But all those days I can ignore –
Like some unwritten tale they seem...
If now I have a holy core,
For sure that God had this in mind –
To let me change...then try to find
The man I was, but am no more...
poem by Ion Minulescu, translated by Octavian Cocoş
