To My Love On New Year's Eve

This is a poem from the collection of love poems by Nizar Kabbani, the Syrian poet.

I love you
And I don't want
To link you
To the water or the wind,
To the ebb and flow of the sea,
To the hours of the solar eclipse
I don't care
About what the astronomers say
About what appears
In the lines of the coffee cups.
Your eyes are
The only prophecy.
