THE SHADOW OF LIGHT: By Franco Battiato

THE SHADOW OF LIGHT

ombra1.1
“Defend me from opposing forces,
the night, in my sleep, when I am not conscious,
when my path is uncertain,
And not leave me ever …
Do not leave me ever!
Carry me higher areas
in one of your realms of tranquility:
It’s time to leave this cycle of lifetimes.
And not leave me ever,.
Do not leave me ever!
Why, the joys of deep affection
milder or longing of the heart
just the shadow of light,
remember, as I am unhappy
away from your laws;
How not to waste the time I left.
And not leave me ever …
Do not leave me ever!
Why, the peace that I have heard in some monasteries,
or the vibrant understanding of all the senses in celebration,
just the shadow of light.”
(Franco Battiato)
