My Fragile Dream - Poem by Paolo Mikel Moro

The earth I am living with became empty
I don't know why i am the only one who survived
from that day, I dug a shallow grave beside my bed
just to feel that I am still not alone in the world

I opened my door just to see the sky
Cleared up my eyes from the tears
I felt the summer wind gently touched me
As i gazed upon this twilight of memory

I looked back on the life I used to live
Happiness was not that hard to achieve
As pain I conquer from the very core of me
but those remains beautiful history

But a vestige of people broke my heart
A vision how they died in this lonely world
I could barely breathe that day
How I wish they could just stay

I wonder, how fate buried my smiles
and how the sun becomes so cold
I want to figure out why this all happens
If I could only put this remorse away from my heart

After all, the only thing i could do is search
looking for something that is a valuable proof
that I existed in the world I used to call mine
before my life shifted on how it is today.
