Many a broken heart

Shall quietly bid farewell to life.


Like a wall clock imprisoned by solitude,

A broken heart is never late for a date with death,

Whether the day is rising

Like a purple curtain,

Whether the night is falling

Like a silky black blind,

Broken hearts always have the same role,

To open the doors

Of hearts much harder than they are.


Echoes of broken hearts are heard beyond the heavenly dome,

Much louder than down below,

As if they promised themself to angels

Before death had arrived.


When the petals of a young rose fall to the consecrated ground,

Broken hearts rise up to heaven

To sing with angels

In praise of the Lord.


There isn’t too much joy to darkness,

The home of solitude,

The earthly shelter for broken hearts,

That are flying up to heaven so joyfully now,

To adorn themself with heavenly freedom

Like a prince with his crown.


When you hear the wind’s merry whistle,

Know that another broken heart flew off

Into blue infinities,

To obtain its angelic wings.
