how it is 80

idag flög huset rakt ut i luften
vi låg stilla på golvet
fingrarna på min kind

vi hade varit bland främlingar
på natten hade vi dragit oss undan
vi sov i samma kropp
elden i munnen
när vi pratade lyste det om oss

tidshjulet som snurrade i vårt huvud
hade stannat
vi var döda
vi hade ingen framtid kvar

nu gick hjulet andra vägen
baklänges
vi färdades i andens kropp
hon kysste mina fingrar
trädet i oss som hade växt i vårt hjärta
alla de åren vi vandrat i mörkret
var högre än himlen

vi såg barnen leka i gräset
den gula fjärilen
humlan i blomman
blåa viken

vi gick igenom födelsen tillbaka
ögon var kvar i oss
då vi lämnade
himlen

in english

Today the house flew straight out in the air
We lay still on the floor
fingers on my cheek

we had been among strangers
at night, we came away
we slept in the same body
fire in the mouth
when we talked it shone from us

time wheel spinning in our head
had stopped
we were dead
we had no future left

Now the wheel went the other way
backwards
we were traveling in the spiritual body
She kissed my fingers
the tree in us who had grown in our hearts
all the years we wandered in darkness
was higher than the sky

We saw children playing in the grass
the yellow butterfly
bumble bee in flower
blue bay

we went through the birth back
eyes were left in us
when we left
the sky
