Pecanje u zvezdama / Fishing In The Stars

! This post was written long ago. What you're reading is not necessarily how I feel about things in 2017. This blog was started by an 18-year-old in 2001. Please, keep that in mind before you freak out.

I wrote this one for my father. If you thought that atheists had no respects for dead, you were wrong. The loved ones might not be going anywhere, but for as long as I love, my dad lives on.

Pecanje među zvezdama

Kad si preminuo,
uzela sam jedan od tvojih štapova za pecanje
i pecala u suzama koje sam ispustila,
pecala sam u rekama, jezerima i morima,
nisam uhvatila ništa sem tuge,
nisam videla ništa sem brige.

Onda sam pogledala noćno nebo,
bilo je tako svetlo,
zaboravila sam na sve sukobe,
otišla da pecam među zvezdama
i našla sam te.

Dokle god je mene,
ti živiš u meni,
svaka reč koju si ikad izgovorio,
svaka stvar koju sam ikad čula.

Moje nebo je samo moje,
moje nebo je moj noćni ogrtač,
moje cipele i moj kišobran.
I to je jedino nebo gde te mogu naći,
ono izvan mog kišobrana
je neplodno,
i tamo se ne može pecati.


Fishing In The Stars

After you died,
I took one of your fishing rods,
And I fished in the tears I cried,
I fished in pounds, rivers and seas,
And I caught nothing but sadness,
I saw nothing but worries.

Then I looked at sky in the night,
It was so bright,
I forgot all the wars
Went fishing in the stars,
And found you.

As long as there is me,
You live in me,
Every word you ever said,
Every thing I ever heard.

My sky is my own,
My sky is my nightrobe,
My shoes and my umbrella,
And it's the only sky where I can find you,
The one outside my umbrella
Is infertile,
And you cannot fish there.

    Hey Iva,
    This is really beautiful. I love your imagination.
    I applaud you for translating your poems and thoughts to English, sometimes I find it very hard to do so and my thoughts and poems remain in Hebrew 🙂
