I would like to see you
One last time
Before I never see you again.

I would ask you to sit next to me,
Not so close,
That I can’t look at your beautiful face
Without the night of your hair
Interrupting my vision.
And not so far,
That I can’t smell the fragrance
Of your soul
That once left me restless in love.

Sit next to me,
Your skin barely neighboring mine,
These clothes hiding your shine.

I would not touch you,
Do not be afraid,
For I turned to stone the moment I looked at you.

I would not steal that heart of yours,
For I can’t steal from my guardian.

I would just sit and watch you,
Look at my luck and sigh,
And wonder and curse,
For finding the world outside of you
When it was indeed within you
All my life.
