about love and goodbyes

You came to my life as a surprise, a little color in my sky. Fell on my destiny and landed on my heart. From the day we met until the day we parted ways, I never once felt alone.

We knew we were good together and never wanted to be…

a nocturnal sonata

The movement of the night,
Back and forward, so slight
We can barely see it.
Just feel it.

Slowly opening her eyes,
Behind the branches of stars,
She steps out.
Greeting those who look from below.

It’s late, quiet, gloomy.
Perfect time to wander around.
What is darkness if you carry
Your light?

if you live in fear, life will pass you by

The day is born on the other side as you watch from afar.

It’s beautiful the blue in the sky but it’s scary to go outside.

You don’t quite know why but every time you try, something pulls you back.

As if the danger lived in stepping out of what is familiar.

So, behind the curtain you remain as life passes by.
