Si la Vie me Demandait…

Si la vie me demandait de m’arrêter pour un moment
Et de respirer l’instant…

I would inhale the moment with you
I would breathe in each minute I spent glancing at you…

Je fermerais les yeux et je sentirais tes doigts toucher ma peau légèrement
Ton souffle effleurer mon cou vaporeusement
Tes lèvres embrasser ma paume doucement…

Je ne me souviens pas le parfum que tu portais,
Mais j’ai retenu l’arôme et les couleurs de notre conversation
Un soir d’automne sous une pluie chaude d’été…

Si la vie me demandait de t’aimer…
Je le ferais seulement si ta passion pour moi est bien plus forte que toi
Car je serai à ton côté pour la même raison d’être…

The signature of your love shall be:
The way you will stare with depth into my eyes,
The way you will embrace me tenderly and hold me tight in your arms,
The way you will show courtesy and respect towards everything I am…

I shall then seal it all with my passion
And adore you in return…
I shall honour your devotion with dignity
And treasure it forevermore…

Et si la vie ne me demandait rien de tout cela?
Je te serais toujours proche
Car c’est elle qui m’a conduit vers toi…

What would “Joie de Vivre” be without Love. My post is not an article! But a poem I have been working on for a few months. It expresses how emotions become a true Passion when feelings are in harmony from both sides in a relationship. Its deepest meaning calls you to look into your heart and listen to its deepest desires with self-esteem: “I will Love you, only if your Passion for me is stronger than your own – self …. Because I shall be by your side for the same reason.” To give, you need to receive but also to show courtesy towards the devotion a person offers to you. Not to use it nor to be abused.  

True Love comes when two individuals are first in Balance within their Oneness….  Love is composed of four Cardinal Virtues:  Wise Prudence (to perceive in each circumstance our good and selecting the right means towards it), Justice (to show respect towards others & their feelings), Temperance (the Mastery to discipline the impulsive instinct and maintain desire within honourable limits) and Fortitude (to stand with self-confidence & firmness towards what is right). There is no Life if Love does not Prevail! 

To blossom my poem, which you will hear me reciting, I decided to couple it with a beautiful Piano Melody from one of my favourite composers: Tiana Andreas – http://tianapiano.com/ – whom I thank with all of my Heart for giving me the Privilege & Honour to use one of her compositions called “Serrano” to complete: “Si La Vie me Demandait….”  

A warm thank you to my web designer Diamantis Skordos (https://www.facebook.com/diamantis.skordos) and his team “Design Theory” for creating the audio and for all their magnificent support!
