When I am broken

I hear the strings of my heart 
and its music

                                        moves me.

When I am mended

I forget the sounds
that once resounded

                                        within me.

Perhaps that is why 
it breaks 

again and again

that my heart 
be never far
from the music


                                                            strung upon it.

        And how could they not? I hope you’ve ordered the complete works. Makes me wish I understood Swedish to read them in the original.
