Memories...



You and I
Lying on the grass…
Looking up
And counting the stars…

Giving names
To one and each…
Lifting our fingers
Pretending, them, we can reach…

Sharing silly stories
Laughing like kids…
Being with each other
Filled with such bliss…

Looking together
In the same direction…
Sharing a dream
So near to perfection…

My arms around you
your safety, your shield…
Your soothing touch
My heart’s content and fulfilled…

We feign ignorance
To the moon’s descent slow…
Which will give way to tomorrow
When you will have to go…

Time we can’t enslave
But this moment we can save…
Like children
The moment we seize…
The feeling, the togetherness
In our memories we try to freeze…

The memories will be
Penned in my diary’s page…
So that they don’t vanish
I will keep them in cage…
When you far away,
When you are not near…
That page will be
Kissed by my falling tears…
