The One I Love

A poem to the one I love

A poem of hope and fury

A sign of fire in the dark


It goes round and round

No one there to stop its turn

No one there to kill the light


The world is dark

But I got a light

That never goes out


Not now

Not now


It will never burn down

Only the distance makes me

Feel so lonely


But my thoughts go hundreds of miles

To search the one I love

To imagine her smile

To see her body


In the light of a full moon

Somewhere in the snow.
