Stille ontmoetingen in de mist (Dutch/English) … Passing through, passing through. Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,

Stille ontmoetingen in de mist
Geen verre verte
De leegte lijkt dichtbij …
De radar aan, of zoals vroeger luisteren luisteren
De zon komt door
Een beetje laat misschien
Hoewel er nog een hele middag voor ons ligt.
De haven ligt in rust.
De schipper ook.

Silent encounters in the mist
Not far away
The void seems close…
Turn on the radar, or listen like you used to
The sun comes through
A little late maybe
Although we still have a whole afternoon ahead of us.
The harbor is at rest.
The skipper too.

Passing through, passing through.
Sometimes happy, sometimes blue,
Glad that I ran into you.
Tell the people that you saw me passing through.

(Leonard Cohen)
