Our Small Paradise

We were in one of our secret small paradises
A very secluded place
Only you and me
And we were united by nature
Tall tress, wild grass, the undisturbed sky, the silent hill

I always ran to the abandoned swing
As soon as we arrived there
You liked to see me playing on the swing
You liked to see me jumping here and there among butterflies
And you also liked the way I posed for photographs
But most of the snapshots you took
Were taken when I was not aware, and a lot
It became your favorite thing when we were together
In our wonderland
Where nobody sneaked on us
Where I could forget that you were wearing a wedding ring
Where I did not think about the world outside us
Where I did not even think about tomorrow
You loved to see me laugh
And we laughed together

“How I am crazy about you” you said
Looking closely at my eyes
You are so pure and natural
Like the sun, the wind, and the sea
I never understood what you meant, even until now
But I liked the way you said it
So I spread my arms
And soon I lost in your embrace
You held me tightly
As if you would never let me go
