A Long Time from Now by Kim So-wol

(translated from the Korean by geul)

A long time from now, if you were to look for me
then my words would be, “I have forgotten you.”

If you were to inwardly reproach me
“After much longing, I have forgotten you.”

If you were to still reproach me
“I have forgotten you because I could not believe it.”

I have not forgotten you today nor yesterday and
a long time from now, then, “I have forgotten you.”
