Rebirth--By Irsa Ruçi--Albania

Rebirth

Take away this silent smile from me
That chants to happiness
Like the birds to spring;

Travel it without showing mercy
And find the light to the light
Through the butterflies’ dance
Like the flirtatious
But give it back to me again
Again give it back:

Because the smile is like sun
Rises to give life…

(Translated by Silva Daci)
