  • How to say that a calm vision

    flashes again and again

    How to convey, solemn serenity

    descends to ease the pain

    How to express that the heart

    beats in memories enchained

    How to convince that a

    peaceful presence remains

    How to relate the touch

    sensed so deep in the domains

    How to connect the eternal loss

    that good health claims ?


    Let me just believe then

    the rose has a sharp thorn

    life’s safe lodging is but torn

    where once life itself was born

    the sweet scent is a refrain

    there's always a personal loss


    there was once a sacred gain'
