A moment of sweet grace
A warm moment not like any other
Like far away longing lives in my heart

Did you imagine? Or you didn’t
Asks me the soft voice
A memory of a sudden love
Floats in me

Turns in me
The warm memory
It feels like it was a dream, an illusion
You were and maybe
You were just like
A momentary passion or a brief delusion

And you, you are forever
With you forever
In my heart bleeds like a wound
And the heart trembles
And you don’t know
You are the one, there is no other
How did it all collapse?
How did it all stumble?

A moment of sweet grace
You touched my shoulder
How did you ask then
To kiss my lips
You saw and maybe you didn’t
The live voice asks in me
A memory of a sudden love in my thoughts

You passed my life
You raised a tower in me
And a whole city for a minute, for a second
You were the essence
You were what faith commanded
A small bit of the whole being

And you……..
