A splendid flower, hello!
Don’t you know me?
I live here, near you,
you are blooming close to me.
We drink water from the same stream.
Our air is one and the same:
I breathe out – you breathe in,
you breathe out – I breathe in.
But if something goes wrong –
Someone breaks your blossom,
smashes your stem,
I’ll be living after your death,
for only one last short breath.
