Here is a wonderful poem written by JL Dabadie for the Italian-French singer Serge Regianni.
I chosed a song by Reasoner cause his musics often make me nostalgic : I wanted to create this effect with the text.
I just hope you'll like it.
I tried to translate the poem the more exactly I could :

How long...
How much time left ?
Years, days, hours ? How much ?
When I think about it, my heart beats so...
My homeland is life.
How long... ?
How ?

I love so much the time left...
I wanna laugh, run, speak, cry,
And see, and beleive,
And drink, dance
Scream, eat, swim, jump, disobey,
I've not finished yet ! I've not finished yet !
To fly, to sing, to leave, to leave again,
To suffer, to love...
I love so much the time left...

I forgot my birthplace, and my birthday
I know it's been a short time...
And I know that my homeland is life
I also know that my father used to say :
Time is your bread...
Save it for tomorrow...

I still have bread,
I still have time, but how much ?
I wanna play again...
I wanna laugh mountains of laughs,
I wanna cry torrents of tears,
I wanna drink so much wine
From Bordeau and from Italy
And dance, scream, fly, swim in all oceans
I've not finished yet ! I've not finished yet !
I wanna sing
I wanna speak until my voice diseppear...
I love so much the time left...

How long...
How much time left ?
Years, days, hours ? How much ?
I want stories, travels...
I have so much people to see, so much images...
Children, women, great men,
Little men, funny ones, sad ones,
Very clever ones, and foolish ones...
Fool people are so nice, they help me to rest...
Like foliage on the roses...

How long...
How much time left ?
Years, days, hours ? How much ?
I don't care, my love...
When the orchestra stops, I'll still be dancing...
When airplanes stop flying, I'll fly alone...
When time stops..
I'll continue loving you..
I don't know where, I don't know how...
But I'll continue loving you...

Okay ?

------------
So, did you like it ? The original, told by Regianni, has broken my heart many times !
I just wanted to share a text I liked a lot.
Tell me what you think about it !
