Translations of "Poem"

Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? Could someone  kindly edit this poem which was translated from Korean into a broken English? (on the comment) Some artistic and poetic touch are needed. Thank you very much for your time and effort! Much appreciated!  Have a great day/night! :))
A: Very sombre. I read it as a poem about the inevitability of death and how it is mostly not front of mind, but there anyway. With that in mind, below is my edited interpretation, trying to keep with the sombre mood. My Korean isn't good enough to understand all the words, let alone the poetic nuance, so I've guessed at what you're trying to achieve and interpreted that into English. This means that especially at the end, I took liberties with the words in your own translation. But do change it all - you're the poet!

[Possible Title: My Companion ?]

Numbers on a piece of paper
as I left the embrace of my mother's womb.
Someone placed a piece of paper with a long number
in my bean-like tiny hand.
From that moment my companion was at my side.
On my 100 days celebration. My elementrary school entrance ceremony too.
When we moved out, and at my father's funeral
Grandfather's, grandmother's 60th birthdays, and their funerals too
... and uncle's ...

When I moved to other cities, when I crossed the Pacific Ocean,
he always followed me around
On his face neither joy nor sadness
Always silent. Quietly behind me.

Time goes by, that piece of paper in my hand.
The numbers are getting smaller and smaller.
All this time my companion in the black suit
has been patiently grinding away at that scythe.
I hadn't really noticed it before.

Love at First Sight

Written by Wislawa Szymborska in Polish
Translated into English By Stanislaw Baranczak & Clare Cavanagh
They're both convinced
that a sudden passion joined them.
Such certainty is beautiful,
but uncertainty is more beautiful still.

Since they'd never met before, they're sure
that there'd been nothing between them.
But what's the word from the street staircase hallways—
perhaps they've passed by each other a million times?

I want to ask them
if they don't remember—
a moment face to face
in some revolving door?
perhaps a "sorry" muttered in a crowd?
a curt "wrong number" caught in the receiver?—
but I know the answer.
No, they don't remember.

They'd be amazed to hear
that Chance has been toying with them
now for years.

Not quite ready yet
to become their Destiny,
it pushed them close, drove them apart,
it barred their path,
stifling a laugh,
and then leaped aside.

There were signs and signal
even if they couldn't read them yet.
Perhaps three years ago
or just last Tuesday
a certain leaf fluttered
from one shoulder to another?
Something was dropped and then picked up.
Who know maybe the ball that vanished
into childhood's thicket?

There were doorknobs and doorbells
where one touch had covered another
Suitcases checked and standing side by side.
One night, perhap the same dream,
grown hazy by morning.

Every beginning
is only a sequel, after all,
and the book of events
is always open halfway through.
A: I’d be happy to read it for you! However, I don’t use WeChat. Do you have a tumblr, twitter, or discord account? I could send it through there.
Q: 📄 "When I was asked to write a short poem by our new teacher, it was a piece of cake to me."
Does this sound natural?
A: This is all a piece of cake for you, Tania! Well done.

First in spanish:

táctica y estrategia

mi táctica es mirarte
aprender como sos

mi táctica es hablarte
y escucharte
construir con palabras
un puente indestructible

mi táctica es
quedarme en tu recuerdo
no sé como ni sé
con qué pretexto
pero quedarme en vos

mi táctica es ser franco
y saber que sos franca
y que no nos vendamos
para que entre los dos
no haya telón ni abismos

mi estrategia es en cambio
más profunda y más simple

mi estrategia es que un día cualquiera
no sé cómo ni sé
con qué pretexto
por fin me necesites.

my translation:
