Jag förstår.
Jag hörs ingen att bör
förklarar mig

Men jag minnas mer
än förklarningarna.
Jag minnas leenderna
men också andra.

Du behöv inte
Att förklarar mig.
Däreför att jag förstå.
Men jag kan inte förlåta dig.

(I understand./ I have heard nothing that should/ explain to me/ why./ But I remember more/ than explanations./ I remember the smiles/ but also the rest./ You do not need/ to explain to me./ because I understand./ But I cannot forgive you.) [NB: in Swedish]

Thanks for the translation, Lu. =D I enjoyed this poem...very to the point and minimalistic.

Minamlist, indeed. And nicely done. However, if you like minimalist poetic writing, do check out some Burzum lyrics. One of my Burzum reviews are posted on this site.
