All I can do
is pray.
Not even in words
but through my look –
by peeping into a child's eyes.
There, in these big eyes,
a Universe lies,
black as a vinyl disk
with the golden scratches of constellations.
All I can do
is pray.
Not even through my eyes,
but through my hands
stroking the fair tresses,
smelling of pancakes
and hot chocolate.
All I can do is love
as long as I live.

Translated from the Ukrainian by Julia Musakovska
