Ilari Rahja


I sit here thinking.
Also dreaming.
Of things past.
And of a future.

I drink, Wine!
So red and sweet.
Like roses in the sun.
Bitter tears, of blood.

Doubt, my actions last.

What would have happened?
What could have changed?
Was it all in vain?
A wish, cause of pain.

A dream - Of friendship.
Love and home.
Many years have passed.
Since then.

But I can still.
Remember when.
We first met.
Talked and kissed.

Promises, of seeing...
Each other again.
The nights, days and years.
Spent together.

All sensations, we felt.

Memories, bitter and sweet.
Sunset, by the sea.
Warmth, of cliffs.
Of the wind...

With colors of gold.
Purple red.
Glow of waves.
In the waning light.

Setting sun.
Your voice.
Whispers of love.
And of care.

To think...
Happiness, you gave.
To me.
Each and every day.

The time.
You went away.
Overwhelms me with sorrow.
Regret and fear.

Of future - Of our past.
Of feelings, that might last.

Under thy long locks thou may'st have the scall
But after my making thou write more true!
