Valentijntje…

Zelf geen wilde plannen of cadeaus of zo. Drukdrukdruk. Maar een status op facebook stak dit gedicht uit de opera “Einstein on the Beach” van Philip Glass in mijn hoofd. Geniet even mee.

two lovers sat on a park bench
with their bodies touching each other
holding hands in the moonlight
there was silence between them
so profound was their love for each other
they needed no words to express it
and so they sat in silence on a park bench
with their bodies touching
holding hands in the moonlight
finally she spoke
“do you love me, john?” she asked
“you know I love you, darling” he replied
“I love you more than tongue can tell
you are the light of my life
my sun, moon, and stars
you are my everything
without you, I have no reason for being”
again, there was silence
as the two lovers sat on a park bench
their bodies touching
holding hands in the moonlight
once more, she spoke
“how much do you love me, john?” she asked
he answered, “how much do I love you?
count the stars in the sky
measure the waters of the oceans with a teaspoon
number the grains of sand on the seashore
impossible, you say?”

(Uit Einstein on the Beach, Knee Play 5)
