Let us pretend we’re children once again
and with bare feet explore the world anew,
unaware of war or death or pain;
belonging to the Earth’s so lucky few.
We feel the sprinkling rain caress our skin,
the tears of gods and goddesses above
they witness the rebirth of Roman kin –
we now are Mars and Venus, bound by love.
You hold me close as if I’ll float away,
our toes do touch and everything is right;
Forever in your arms now will I stay,
your princess of the dawn, the day, the night.
We fight, we scream, we cry, we kiss, we love –
until the very end we turn to dust.
