Obituary

Respire Lavi | Breathe in Life — a poem by Patrick Sylvain

 Aprè yon kè kase,

Mwen santi lavi m’ ap depafini.

Nan mitan lannuit,

M’al chita bò lanmè

Pou m’ respire lavi

Tèlman yon anvi mouri

Anpare vi m’ ki poko menm fleri.

Matla somèy mwen tounen yon rivyè tristès

K’ap anglouti espwa aprè yon lanmourez pati

Pou m’ eskive pwa senkant deprim,

Mwen fòse leve gade zetwal k’ap file.

Aprè yon kè kase,

M’evite nwaye nan lapèn.

Lang mwen tounen yon eponj

K’ap souse yon debòdman kriye

Pou chagren pa inonde kè m’.

O! Prens Tan,

Gerisè blesi

Pote yon pansman solèy

Pou refleri fon kè m’ ak yon jaden kalen

Kote iwondèl lajwa ka polinize lanmou.

                                                                                   In English                                                                           

After an excruciating heart break,

I’ve felt my life depleting.

In the middle of the night,

I’ve sought refuge by the sea

To breathe in life.

I’ve been agonized and coaxed by death’s call

And my life has not fully blossomed.

My bed, a river of sorrow,

Engulfs hopes following a lover’s egress.

Sensing the weight of depression,

I forced myself to actively stargaze.

After an excruciating heart break,

I avoided drowning in my anguish.

My tongue became a sponge,

Sucking up flooded tears.

Prince of time,

Healer of wounds

Grant me a sun-rayed cure

To replenish my heart with a cuddling

Garden, where Streamertail Hummingbirds

Can pollinate a stronger strain of affection.
