Tell Me About Love




I love you openly

But you cannot see this

Because you are looking

In the wrong direction

Just turn around now

 And you will see.


I love you quietly

But you cannot hear this

Because you are listening

 In the deafness of silence

Listen for our love now

And you will hear.


I love you completely

But you cannot feel this

Because we are touching

In sometimes sadness

Hold me closer now

And you will feel.







Ti amo apertamente

ma tu non puoi vederlo

perchè stai guardando

nella direzione sbagliata

Voltati ora

e vedrai..


Ti amo quietamente

ma tu non puoi sentirlo

nel silenzio assordante

Ascolta il nostro amore ora

e sentirai.


Ti amo totalmente

ma tu non puoi sentirlo

perchè ci incontriamo

talvolta in momenti tristi

Tienimi vicino ora

e saprai





Je t'aime ouvertement

Mais ça tu ne peux pas le voir

Parce que tu regardes

Dans la mauvaise direction

Tourne-toi à présent

Et tu verras.


Je t'aime discrètement

Mais ça tu ne peux pas l'entendre

Parce que tu écoutes

Dans la surdité du silence

Cherche notre amour à présent

Et tu l'entendras.


Je t'aime entièrement

Mais ça tu ne peux pas l'éprouver

Parce que nous nous touchons

Parfois dans la tristesse

Serre-moi plus fort à présent

Et tu le sentiras.






Yo te amo abiertamente

pero tu no puedes ver esto

por que tu estas buscando

en la dirección equivocada

solo dá la vuelta ahora

y tu verás.

te amo en silencio

pero tu no puedes oir esto

por que tu estas escuchando

en la sordera del silencio

escucha nuestro amor ahora

y tu oirás.

yo te amo completamente

pero tu no puedes sentir esto

por que estas tocando

algunas veces la tristeza

sosténme mas cera ahora

y tu  sentirás.

What an accomplishment, in four languages! And as nearly as I could judge, each skillfully handled. To the best of my speaking ability, I even enjoyed the spoken resonance of the Italian and the French.

Plus the thought content is very engaging.

The language of love. Love it.
Like the shape of the English one.
