L'adieu

Language: French (Français)

J'ai cueilli ce brin de bruyère
L'automne est morte souviens-t'en 
Nous ne nous verrons plus sur terre
Odeur du temps brin de bruyère
Et souviens-toi que je t'attends

Farewell

Language: English after the French (Français)

I picked this sprig of heather.
Autumn is dead - remember.
We will never see each other again on this earth.
Odor of time, sprig of heather,
and remember that I am waiting for you.
