Igor Grey Balatsky


If only

If only
I became a wind
a rain or just a cloud

If only
I became a bird
to spread my hungry wings
in the far distant flight
to the edge of my

I'm nothing
but a sunbeam
that wakes you up in the morn

I'm just a song
that always sounds in your heart
which is so far apart
but is never
