I Want To Go With The One I Love Poem by Bertolt Brecht


[Original]

Ich will mit dem gehen, den ich liebe.
Ich will nicht ausrechnen, was es kostet.
Ich will nicht nachdenken, ob es gut ist.
Ich will nicht wissen, ob er mich liebt.
Ich will mit ihm gehen, den ich liebe.

[Translation]

I want to go with the one I love.
I do not want to calculate the cost.
I do not want to think about whether it's good.
I do not want to know whether he loves me.
I want to go with whom I love.

    Brecht recognised love as unconditional. His verse reminds me of La Rochefoucauld's aphorism, 'c'est toujours un qui aime et un qui est aimee' -there is always one who loves, and one who is loved. (Report) Reply
