Longing

The heart longs and the mind remembers it...


Look into the distance

And there flashes into one's mind

A fleeting memory

A sudden rush of melancholia...

 


One cannot name

How the world seemed to glow;

When the heart quietly prays

Of that long-lost song...

 


Lips purse

As the songs pass by;

The heart cannot hold on

For so long, so short...

 


Upwards, to the sky

Infinite and blue;

One's eyes seek

What one has always been asking...
