The Gates of Delirium (iii) Soon

The Gates Of Delirium comes to its finale! I invite you to comment on this entry and share your interpretation of “Soon” – a wonderful poem that may have many personal meanings for each of you…

Translations wanted – let’s write “Soon” in all languages of the world! A few guidelines:

  • create a singable version with the original vocal melody.
  • no need to translate word by word – be creative – write your own meaning.
  • change the words as to flow naturally in your own language.
  • back-translate into English – to explain your translation literally.
  • Read other people’s comments – it will give you some ideas.
  • If you are a native English-speaker, you can write by your own words your interpretation of “Soon”

A future video collaboration with your version of “Soon” can be arranged – to be discussed later.

Thank you very much!

Original (English version)

Soon oh soon the light
Pass within and soothe this endless night
And wait here for you
Our reason to be here

Soon oh soon the time
All we move to gain will reach and calm
Our heart is open
Our reason to be here

Long ago, set into rhyme

Soon oh soon the light
Ours to shape for all time, ours the right
The sun will lead us
Our reason to be here
