The dream

I know you’ll leave soon
I can feel it.
When you finally do it
Please
don’t take everything with you.
When you leave
let me keep at least memories.
Do not let me forget
about the dream
which I had
when you were here.
Do not let me forget
about the freedom
which I felt
when you were here.
Do not let me forget
what I knew
when you were here
what was important.
When you leave
let me keep
part of you
in my heart.

Leave

You’re trying to encourage me
but that’s all nonsense
treacherous leeches
in crystal clear water
Don’t try to do anything
to speak, to think
I’m telling you I have nothing
nothing to remember, believe me.

Nobody

all this was just an illusion.

You’re nobody
to me
I don’t know you
you’re not here

who I really was for you?

I am nobody
to you
You don’t know me
I’m not here

Longing

I miss you
your cheerful face
your wise eyes.
I miss you
our spontaneous trips
our conversations.
I miss it
that I felt good
when I was with you.
I miss it
how you treated me,
when I was with you.
I miss you
but it doesn’t mean that
I want you to come back.
I miss you
but it doesn’t mean that
I want you to be here.
I miss you
but it doesn’t mean that
I want to talk to you
again.

World, hold on

Today might be the day
It seems like a whole eternity has passed
It might be today
I’m so tired now
If only you could stop for a moment
Wander and sing in silence
So that only heaven knows what you say
If you could jump into the water
Icy to the bone, it would tell you
If only you could hear the wind’s whisper
You would know what you want the most
If you could watch and see
Everything would be so much more beautiful
Now I’m just waiting for the day
When it all starts
It might be today
