If Ever You Leave for a Moment

Евтим Евтимов


If ever you leave for a moment,
I shall bury my face in a cloud –
And wretched shall then be the Earth.
Neither rain,
Nor snow,
Nor sun,
Only sorrow shall pour from above,
'n' wash the last footsteps away
Of the dream,
Which is parting with me
To become a Black Sunday.
Neither path,
Nor a dream,
Nor a cry.

If ever you leave for a moment.

The poem was made into a song performed by Impulse in 1984 (released in 1985). Watch on YouTube. The lyrics omit the last four verses but repeat some of the others.
