This is a poem I wrote for my lovely girl on the occasion of Valentine's day. For the English version, see below. The Dutch was the original, but both it and the translation are by me.


Angst en Verlangen

Hier in de trein
In gedachten verzonken
Mijn hart ondertussen in vlammen en vonken
Denk ik aan jou
Mijn Valentijn
Hoe graag ik nu toch bij jou zou zijn

Wat zou ik toch
Liefst poot in hand
Met jou samen reizen door dit mooie land
Langs dorpen en velden
Door berg en dal
Een avontuur tezamen de mooiste van al

En hebben we even
Onze tijd te rijk
Zou ik je omhelzen, zoenen en liefhebben tegelijk
Ik knuffel je, je streelt me
Zo teder en zacht
Met je vingers door mijn bonte wintervacht

Plots zegt conducteur
We zijn er alweer
En meteen is het een drukte van weleer
En plots
Voel ik me alleen
Zo eenzaam, vervreemd en bang ook meteen

Maar toch ben ik
Niet bevreesd
Tijden zijn erger geweest
Want ik voel mij
Zo ver van huis
Bij jou telkens weer thuis...


Fears and Desires

Here in the train
Lost in my mind
My heart set aflame and my tongue in a bind
I think of you
My Valentine
How I would love you now to be mine

How much would love
With my paw in your hand
To journey with you through this beautiful land
Passing houses and fields
Mountains, rivers, waterfall
An adventure together with the fairest of all

And when we would have
Just a moment to spare
I would embrace you, love you and kiss you everywhere
I hug you, you caress me
So soft and so sure
With your fingers through my warm winter fur

Suddenly a voice sounds
The train has arrived
And with those words the whole train is revived
But then I feel
So alone and so scared
So lonely, so helpless with my courage ensnared

And yet I realise
I should not despair
For in my mind you will always be there
So far from home
Yet there is no real divide
Because with you in my heart you're still by my side...
