Like a slow and sad song

My heart beats so silent tonight

Even being warmed in someone’s embrace

Happiness is far away

If I can not hold you tigh.

The true love can not be changed

It can not disappear with time.

Life moves ahead

Seasons come and go…

But the choice will be forever there.

Reality calls.


And the only thing I can ask is:

Untill when will it last?

A month?

Several months?

A year?

The whole life?

Perhaps it won’t last even an hour.

So ephemeral…

So vain…

But I try it,

Because I’ve promised you I’d try to be happy.

And I’m doing it.

But tell me

How can I be happy

Missing a part of me?

Clara Maria Cristina Borges de Medeiros
