«I like ...»

I like that you are not sick of me,
I like that I'm not sick of you,
What ever the heavy globe
Do not drift away under our feet.

I like that you can be funny -
Promiscuity - not playing with words,
And not blush suffocating wave,
Brush sleeves.

I like it that you are in my
Calmly hug another,
Not averse to me in hell fire
Burn for what I did not kiss you.

What's the name of my gentle, my gentle, not
Mention, day or night - in vain ...
That never in the church silence
They will sing over us: Hallelujah!

Thank you heart and hand
Because you got me - not knowing it! -
So dislike for my night's rest,
For the rarity of seeing sunsets,

For our non-festivals under the moon,
For the sun, not over our heads, -
For the fact that you are sick - alas! - Not me,
Because I'm sick - alas! - Not you!
