"In some minds and hearts
youth arrives a little late
long after childhood has passed
there is an age for every man
when the soul yearns to be young again
and some of us, just like that,
stepping on our miserable, overgrown selves
manage to turn time back."

Past midnight,
Little lights shine all over the sky
Reminding me of the sparkle in your eyes
A moon,
the shape of your smile.

A soothing breeze blows
Bracing my skin

As you did long ago.
Soon it turns cold
Just like us.

Pulling my jacket tighter
Around me
I shield myself
from this cold.

Living in a state of constant wistful despair, perhaps, will be my destiny, said the traveller.

Longing to be touched by you, will perhaps, be mine, whispered back the horizon.

Soul of a drop
Got lost somewhere
When everyone saw it
as nothing but the ocean
