New Year’s Eve by Tatiana Ernuteanu

I waited for the golden hour – the day, the night.

I waited for the winter to pass, I waited for the lunch to be eaten,

To see your shoes by my feet.

On the New Year’s Eve I cried because of evocative memories,

Dressed in my most precious dress –

To put some dignity on me too.

I broke all my cups – because they were two,

And I told myself that you loved me, tight,

Maybe only once

But you loved me.

My fine sandals carried my love debut all night –

From kitchen to terrace, on the pathways to your heart

It was such an arduous journey.

waits, waiting, waited

 – Such a beautiful lexical family.

The hope gets everywhere,

Even on the third floor

Where I saw it in the morning – 

It was standing in a planter full of snowdrops.
