Remembering you brought me
back to those joyful days
kissing on the old wood bench at la plaza.
“I promise I will never leave you alone.
Here and now we stand side by side
as the lovers that we are.”
I’m dying for a love that no
I keep creating fake illusions of you
Ghost is all I see of you;
Here and now I remember when you left.
goodbye, that last blue gaze.
I remember those days at the beach
lying on the warm sand
and hugging each other
while watching the breathtaking
reflection of the sunset.
“Do you see it? It’s the beauty
that this life has planned for us.”
Neither of us predicted this armed struggle,
one, two, three months without your presence,
the war called you.
Please return home.
Return from those decayed fields
slip away from those haunted trenches.
I’m still counting the days left
I’m still hoping for your return home.
Victim is all I am;
accompanied by deadly gases,
Xanthic gases that, in just seconds, took your life away;
You promised to come back
a promise that will never be had.
