I missed very much

when you say “I see”

you will have in view

not my bad condition

that having no money

I waited fortuity

firmly closed the door

but you mean that I

shed much bitter tears

not bearing a brutal beauty

of a nice-smelling mint

at a rustling brook





part 1

a way was sacred

I looked at it

spirit trembled instead of eye’s ball

the way was sacred


part 2

because it led to you

or you were brought too

by the sacred way


part 3


why it happened my dove

I forgot that way

for good and all

after your arrival
