When the winds go cold

Or the skies turn dark

When autumn air grows heavy

With odour of burning leaves,

And chokes your tender

Throat, already filled with

Tears you have Swallowed

When the seasons change

And you watch sparkling stars

Falling down,

And disappearing into shadows

Or when the breeze whispers softly

And the stream sings to you

When autumn spreads its arms

To embrace the trees bare branched

Or when

spring returns home….

And you joyously witness rebirth…

Don’t wait for me

Let the raindrops wash

My memories from your mind

I have crossed the realms unknown

Drifting towards boundaries endless

Don’t wait for me…

For I

Shall be waiting for you.

Don’t wait for me.
