na droge zycia wzialem tzcy kwiatki
kwiat pszyjaciela lubej i matki
I pomsylalem ze te kwiatki swieze one mi
powiedzwa kto mnie kocha szczeze

three flowers

when I went forth into the world
I took with me three flowers

One for my friend,
one for my sweetheart,
one for my mother

and I thought that these three flowers
so fresh and lovely
would let me know
whose love was everlasting and true

my friend's flower wilted first
soon, followed by my sweetheart's

But my mother's flower
it remained so fresh
and fragrant
because
only a mother's love is
true
and everlasting
