We will meet soon
But we will soon part again
Not knowing the next meeting place.
It is two seasons since we last met
Your hair is long now
The last time
We built a house of words.
When I imagined you
Watering the plants in the balcony
You were reading leaves
That this moment is short
This embrace and
Our lives, together and a part
Too soon swept away
By winds of disappearances.
But for now, we will meet
And I will let you rest
Like a soft shadow
On my arm.
