In a single day, I love you thirty years

- Nizar Qabbani

In a single day, I love you thirty years

And I feel like I am racing against my age

And I feel that the time isn’t enough for you

And that minutes are running

And I am running behind them

And I feel that I’m founding something

And I’m planting something in earth’s womb

And I feel, when I love you, that I’m changing my era.
