Hagop Norashkharian (Norouni) (1923-1985)

To Live

To live,
In order to see,
In order to touch, to breathe
Nature's noble, colorful
Beauty inexhaustible!

To live,
In order to watch,
To marvel, to overcome
The feminine caresses,
Like holy bread of hashish...

To live,
To be sacrificed,
To show fondness, to adore
Her, who will give just for you
Her life without reckoning... 

To live,
In order to share
The hero's joy and sorrow,
To celebrate together
The victory born of fire...

To live,
And to live yet still
Just for you my precious one,
You who will come from the clouds
Warmly to lean on my chest...

All poems are from The Future of My Years, , Yerevan, 1982
