Derek Walcott: Love After Love – El amor después del amor

 

Elizabeth Cárdenas - Writer/Escritora

Happy Sunday everyone.

For the past few days, I’d been thinking quite a bit about poetry, and I wasn’t sure why.  Then, while watching my favorite show, Super Soul Sunday, Oprah quoted a few lines from the poem Love After Love by Derek Walcott. My curiosity led me to google it, of course. By the time I finished reading, my eyes were filled with tears. 

Over the past 11 years, I have been going through a spiritual awakening. This poem summed up beautifully what I have not been able to express. I hope you enjoy it.

Love After Love

The time will come 
when, with elation 
you will greet yourself arriving 
at your own door, in your own mirror 
and each will smile at the other’s welcome, 
and say, sit here. Eat. 
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your…

Als een zandkasteel, …..

In de Wereld der materie kunnen allen tijdelijk zijn, maar zij die kinderen van God willen zijn, zullen over zand, water, moerassen en in de wolken van een nieuwe werkelijkheid worden gedragen, door de Eeuwige bestaande God, naar een nog komende wereld, een koninkrijk om voor altijd te blijven en in vrede te leven.

Als een zandkasteel is alles tijdelijk.
Bouw het, neig ernaar, geniet ervan.
En als de tijd daar is, laat het gaan.

Like a sandcastle,…..

In the World of matter, all may be temporary, but those who want to be children of God shall be carried over sand, water, swamps and into the clouds of a new reality, by the Eternal existing God to a world still to come, a Kingdom to stay and to live in peace for ever.

Purplerays

Like a sandcastle, all is temporary.
Build it, tend to it, enjoy it. 
And when the time comes, let it go.

When you are at your lowest point,

At the lowest point in your life you need the guts and strength to see further than the horizon, but know that deep in you there is often more than you would think. Even when we do not feel like a great change could be coming, you should get out of the pitch trusting that also for you somewhere there (perhaps far away) shall shine the light of a bright morning-star willing to give you new energy and at last opening the doors which seemed so tightly closed.

Purplerays

When you are at the your lowest point, you are open to the greatest change.
Strength doesn’t come from what you can do, it comes from overcoming
the things you thought you couldn’t do.
