BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME!

MARIA POLYDOURI


BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME


I only sing because you loved me
in the past years.
And in sun, in summer's prediction
and in rain and snow,
I only sing because you loved me.

Only because you held me in your arms
one night and you kissed my lips,
only for this I'm beautiful as wide open lily
and I still have a shiver in my soul,
only because you held me in your arms.

Only because your eyes looked at me
with the soul in the glance,
proudly I dressed the supreme
crown of my existence,
only because your eyes looked at me.


Only because as I was passing you noticed me
and from your glance I saw to pass
my lissome shadow as a dream
to play, to suffer,
only because as I was passing you noticed me

Because you called me shyly
and you reached after my hand
and you had in your eyes the blurring
- a complete love,
because you called me shyly.


Because, only you liked it
that’s why my passing remained beautiful.
It was like you were following me where I was
as if you were passing somewhere close to me.
Because only you liked it.

I was born only because you loved me,
my life was given for this.
In the graceless, unfulfilled life
my life was fulfilled.
I was born only because you loved me.

Only for your unique love
dawn gave to my hands roses.
So that I light your way for a moment
night filled my eyes with stars,
only for your unique love.

Only because you loved me so well
I lived in order to increase
your dreams, beautiful man that you set
and thus sweetly I die
only because you loved me so well.

Maria Polydouri was a Greek poet who is known for her passionate poems which have a tinge of sadness and are imbued with desperate romanticism. She had an unsuccessful love episode with Kostas Karyotakis, her contemporary and an eminent poet. She died of consumption in an Athens sanatorium in 1930 at a young age of 28.

I dedicate this poem to my soul, my love...
