TONIGHT I DRINK

Translated to English: Rumena Bužarovska
  
because your beauty is making me divinely
    sad and your warm body is not letting me sleep
    and your lips on mine utter the most beautiful of prayers
    and every touch is a vow
    how is it that we ordinary people
    children of streets and swear-words and workers
    how is it that we are in this kingdom
    made of centuries of tears of joy of life
    how is it that we now have this faith
    and God’s face, kind and eternal over our fitful dreams
    when life and death are both love and sorrow
    and everything is restlessness whirlpools fear and force
    and nothing human is eternal and we are no longer
    young and the music plays and the night draws to an end.
