As you open your eyes: Exploring Poste Lafayette (Mauritius)

As you open your eyes, you see beyond…

Beyond the hollow of empty eyes, the promise of a dream

Beyond the veil of the weary tears, the birth of a smile

 

As you open your eyes, you see above…

Above the fall of the gloom, the blossom of open arms

Above the fly of faded flowers, the hope for better days

 

As you open your eyes, you see through…

Through the hues of black and white, the colors of infinity 

Through the silence of unspoken words, the song of being human 

 

As you open your eyes, you see beneath...

Beneath the fold of a thousand wrinkle, the call for new blood

Beneath the tear of grief set ablaze, the rise of the lotus 

 

As you open your eyes, you see me…

Your friend and your neighbour

Your support and your solace

 

As you open my eyes, I see you…

My same and yet my other

My other and yet my very own

Absolutely beautiful! My try in translating it into Spanish:

“Cuando abres los ojos, ves más allá…
Más allá del hueco de los ojos vacíos, la promesa de un sueño 
Más allá del velo de las agotadoras lágrimas, el nacimiento de una sonrisa.

 

Cuando abres los ojos, ves por encima…

Por encima del otoño de melancolía, el surgir de brazos abiertos

Por encima del vuelo de flores marchitas, la esperanza de días mejores.

 

Cuando abres los ojos, ves a través…

A través de las tonalidades del blanco y el negro, los colores del infinito

A través del silencio de palabras no pronunciadas, la canción del ser humano.

 

Cuando abres los ojos, ves por debajo…

Por debajo del pliegue de la milésima arruga, la llamada de la sangre nueva

Por debajo de la lágrima de dolor encendida, el nacimiento del loto.

 

Cuando abres los ojos, me ves…

Tu amiga y tu vecina

Tu apoyo y tu consuelo.

 

Cuando abres mis ojos, te veo…

Mi igual y sin embargo mi otra

Mi otra y sin embargo mi yo misma.”
