Checkpoint Charlie

Checkpoint Charlie

Checkpoint Charlie: You are now leaving Freedom. Below: Berlin freeze: Lola Rennt

Some Christmas Cheer wishing all the guards gone and for the survivors to live in freedom.

Run to Berlin, run for life, run for freedom

Lovers exchange at the appointed hour

Place ourselves beyond the threatening dark

Past goons, past traps, past hate-mongers

Look at the crosses of all who didn’t survive

Victims for the right to love and cherish and remember

Now a name, a memento, with nothing to save

Run Raggie, run for hope, run for our only treasure

Stop the frame, freeze this moment, I could have done things differently you know

A wood cabin in the endless sun

Past the trees, past the island, past the still lake

Look at the memories reborn in an instant so real

Winning the peace, protecting truth

A word, understanding, and everything to create anew

Run my love, run for me, run for you

Meet me at the halfway bridge beyond the guard post

Warm lights penetrate the protective mist

Past silent ones, past improper orders, past total loss

Look forward to our enchanted togetherness

Seekers of happiness, respect, sense

A thought, a touch, all life to give again

(La llum daurada, by Josep C. Vergés, work in progress for 2012)

Checkpoint Charlie

Berlín congelat: Lola Rennt. Primera foto: Checkpoint Charlie: Deixes enrere la llibertat.

Una nadala desitjant que tots els guardes desapareixin i que els supervivents puguin viure en llibertat.

Corre per Berlín, corre per la vida, corre per la llibertat

Els amants s’enllacen a l’hora senyalada

Poseu-vos més enllà de la foscor amenaçant

Més enllà de buscaraons, més enllà de trampes, més enllà de malèvols

Mireu les creus de tots els que no han sobreviscut

Víctimes del seu dret a estimar i respectar i recordar

Només un nom ara, un recordatori, sense res salvat

Corre Raggie, corre per la vida, corre pel nostre tresor únic

Para la imatge, congela aquest moment, jo hauria pogut fer les coses diferent com saps

Una cabana de fusta en el sol que no es pon

Passats els arbres, passada l’illa, passat el llac tranquil

Mira les memòries renascudes en un instant tan real

Guanyant la pau, protegint la veritat

Una paraula, enteniment, i tot per a crear de nou

Corre amor meu, corre per mi, corre per tu

Trobem-nos al pont a mig camí, passada la caseta de guàrdia

Llums càlides penetren la boirina protectora

Passa els que callen, passa les ordres incorrectes, passa la pèrdua total

Mira endavant a la nostra companyia encantada

Cercadors de felicitat, respecte, sentit

Un pensament, una carícia, tota la vida per a donar de nou

(La llum daurada, per Josep C. Vergés, manuscrit pel 2012)
