Two weeks

A month, the time left to forget.

A year, I left it behind.

A twinkling star reminds me the sparkle in his eyes and a sweet melody reminds me the color of her eyes. A dark night brings to my memory his seriousness and a blow of fresh air shows me their images printed on the sky.

A month may be too much, a year may be too late. But two weeks is perfect, two weeks for a couple to fall in love, two weeks to smile or two weeks to finish a book. It doesn’t matter, there are still two weeks.

If you can’t in a year, or in a month, then wait for those two weeks. The time I’ve got left to forget, to let go, to move on. And it doesn’t matter what I do, there are still going to be two weeks. Two weeks made of spring, sunsets and flowers. Two weeks that defy time, that keep frozen in my mind, but I know, sooner or later, I will have to bury them along with the rest of my past. Just give two weeks and I promise I will

Still around. Always haunting. It’s time betraying me once again, it’s life returning to her actual pace. It’s his smile frozen throughout the hours, it’s his laughter hidden between the trails of wind. It’s his happiness fading with the fog. Just give me two weeks and I promise I’ll forget him.

Unable to forget, I keep all of them in my heart and I will keep them there until the end of these eternal two weeks.

 

Bury

Goodbye

Goodbye we say when we see them go away,

goodbye we say when we try to hold on.

Goodbye we use to say when that train departs,

carrying everything we had.

 

So we continue watching him go,

and we start to use to,

that terrible loneliness,

that never left our sides.

 

The train that never runs out of energy,

that flies away with our opportunities.

That sometimes end as a tragedy,

for all our communities.

 

Year after year,

spring after spring.

Just as we start to see things crystal clear,

what time brings.

 

To be successful,

in what we want to get,

we should learn to forget.

 

And we have to learn to say goodbye,

drop that treacherous past.

Finally, everything will come to an end,

and we’ll leave behind that old train.
