The Reasons - Poem by VIRGINIA PECHO GELY

Goodbye cold WINTER...
Nortured by my waiting...forsaken but not forgotten,
Covered-up the withered dried leaves of AUTUMN,
Renounced the prevailing changes of seasons...without reasons.

Watch your steps leaving traces...
Silently escaping my ambivalence,
Looking behind what life has been?
Or just reminiscing regrets of my untold dreams?

SPRING is a blessing,
As daffodils spread over the meadow wet with dew,
Sparkling as of WINTER snow,
Promising scented noondays on the afterglow.

Let me breathe this soothing SUMMER breeze...
Feeling the warmth of the sun upon my face...
An eternal grace...
Captivating as each sunrise and sunset.

Every moment I take is a rainbow I reach,
A vow of a lost soul...
And who unveils?
The mystery remains...
As roses bloom and fade...

Time escapes,
Keeping precious souvenirs...
Of a whisper among the stars in a twilight night,
Astonishing my heart, praying and preaching,
Wishing you to come back.


Summer bids adieu,
It's now my turn to leave and kiss you,
I sadly incline, longing for my footsteps on the sand,
Swept by the rushing waves on to the ocean floor,
I see no traces behind...

I deplore your depart...
Weeping like a child,
I bestow...
The reasons for the four seasons aren't around,
Misty and cold as my hands...

I abide...
Seasons must come and go...
An everlasting rendezvous.

Nature cannot provide,
Answers to my questions I have to find,
Seasons just testify,
This truth I cannot deny.

Somewhere closer than thoughts...
...inside my heart;
I found meanings to my existence...
Now I understand...
I have to laugh and to cry
...and live and love...
