Don’t Go Away by Vita Léo

Ne t’en vas pas.

Je sais que notre amour est très fragile ; il y a beaucoup d’obstacles.

Parfois quand on aime quelqu’un on se sacrifie notre cœur et notre vie pour lui. La vie nous a obligé. Mais ce n’est pas obligé d’accepter ; c’est l’amour qu’on a pour lui qui nous oblige d’accepter l’impossible.

On pense que c’est une trahison, mais non, c’est une nécessité qui lui permet de partir loin régler quelque chose qu’on ne peut pas l’aider.

Une seule chose qu’on attend : le retour de cette personne qu’on aime tant.

Parfois l’attente est très longue; les doutes s’installent, on se demande s’il reviendra un jours nous rejoindre.

 

Don’t go away
I know that our love is very fragile; there are many obstacles.

Sometimes when we love someone we sacrifice our heart and our life for him. Life has obliged us. But it is not obligatory to accept; it is the love we have for him that compels us to accept the impossible.

We think it’s a betrayal, but no, it’s a necessity that forces him to go far and settle something that we cannot help with.

One thing we wait for: the return of this person we love so much.

Sometimes the wait is very long; doubts develop, we wonder if he will come back one day to join us.
