Poem

The first primrose

A little girl drawing her pink dream

 On a white sheet of paper

In a distant country

She listens to the songs of the children of my country

With her hand she greets me gently.

 

A friend who is waiting for my phone call to feel closer to us

The fruit candies eaten hidden under Grandma’s balcony

Yeah I know it’s been a long time out.

Our eyes laughed silently.

 

Now they dry tears always in silence

 But our world of values ​​remains standing.

The cat sleeps in the same position as yesterday and perhaps tomorrow as well.

The switch is still broken.

I won’t be able to see you smiling tonight either.

In front of a fireplace you burn the memories of the heart and the fire stays on.

My world is small and everyone lives in the same country.
