Winter

 

why should we try
why should we even pretend
winter stands at the threshold

 

why would we still hope
when the day comes so early to its end
and gets swallowed by darkness

 

why should we light the candle
why should we lit the fire
cold is getting through the cracks in the wall

 

why should we continue
when the autumn leaves start leaving
for ever lost in the chilly wind

 

waves crash into the rocks
drops of water fall out of the sky
transforming in snow

 

Can you see the light far at sea?
can you feel the warm breeze from afar?
are you there looking at me from a distance?

 

are you waving to me?
or are you just a game of shades?
come closer

 

come closer don’t let me stand here alone
sail into my arms
breathe life into the lifeless bodies left to rot by winter
