Photo by Armando Taborda

slowly, time turns everything into time.
hatred turns into time, love
turns into time, pain turns
into time.

the subjects that we judge most profound,
most impossible, most permanent and immutable,
slowly turn into time.

by itself, time is nothing.
the age of nothing is nothing.
eternity does not exist.
however, eternity exists.

the moments of your eyes on me were eternal.
the moments of your smile were eternal.
the moments of your lightness body were eternal.

you were eternal until the end.

///

devagar, o tempo transforma tudo em tempo.
o ódio transforma-se em tempo, o amor
transforma-se em tempo, a dor transforma-se
em tempo.

os assuntos que julgámos mais profundos,
mais impossíveis, mais permanentes e imutáveis,
transformam-se devagar em tempo.

por si só, o tempo não é nada.
a idade de nada é nada.
a eternidade não existe.
no entanto, a eternidade existe.

os instantes dos teus olhos parados sobre mim eram eternos.
os instantes dos teus sorrisos eram eternos.
os instantes do teu corpo de luz eram eternos.

foste eterna até ao fim.
