A Poem – Love and Peace

Earlier last year I was fortunate to have one of my poems broadcast. It was for Valentines Day actually. I wrote it in Spanish. I want to share with you the translation I recently completed.

Translating my own work allows me to focus beyond the literal translation. Being bilingual, I can bring the emotional meaning into the language although I usually prefer the poem in it’s original form.

I liked the broadcast recording of the poem because I believe it reflects the bubbly excitement the poem brings to me. I hope you enjoy the poem.

Love and Peace
by Lilibeth Andre (translation of the original Amor y Paz)

This year I have known love.

I felt how the heat tingled in my body,

Entering through my hands,

Growing in my belly.

This year I have known love.

It filled my body with heart, beating in acceleration,

Pumping power,

Beating rhythm.

This year I have known love.

It’s heat ignited me from the depth of my center,

It’s fire spreading through my veins.

I felt it skin deep,

Running from my breast,

Flowing from my face.

Filling my soul with hope once again.

This year I have known peace.

I felt how calm began to invade my body,

Covering me like a blanket,

Opening my eyes,

From the soul.

This year I have known peace.

It enveloped me in divine love filling me with calm.

Blooming of fragrances,

Sprouting beautiful colors.

This year I have known peace.

It’s unconditional love filled me completely.

Total acceptance flowed within me.

Happines emerged.

Laughter flowed.

It gave me back the confidence of knowing me master and possessed.
