IF YOU

Nights here are without dream
You offer roses distilled
From your blood
This evening passionately wipes the shadow

The salty taste of tears
Your heart plays softly
Each night
You dump silently

The grief in your lips
Time stood still
You smiled and whispered
Bounced up into spring of dream

You a silent language of the wind
