If you would turn,
cast just a single gaze at me,
you would see the river that leads back home.
It’s waters are rising
falling in drops.
Every single tear carries your face,
like altar boys with holy bread.
So if you’d still leave,
do not look back.
I would be the night clouds,
in search of little stars that would be light.
Do not miss my presence ,
I would be the prodigal finding happiness in lost lands.
My roots spreading, searching for new soil.
But if you,
like the wild birds that fly miles back to their home,
come back to me,
In the light of your dawn,
all darkness of mine shall be undone.
all days before that day erased
all earlier words rephrased and lost in the welcome of your eyes.
I would be a wild flower and a blooming rainbow
Unfolding, revealing, restating my love for you
In a splash of colours.
