Year 2008, Goodbye

This year is soon done. This autumn is soon over. This autumn, one of the hardest in my life, I’m happy to throw away.
I’d jump with joy when getting rid of this year, but I seem to have very little strength left. And all the power that still remains, I’ll save for the one who needs it more than I do.
I’d jump with joy, if I’d believe that the New Year brings light and hope. I’m not sure of that, and I just stay still. That is enough.
I wish you all a peaceful Christmas.

The Swans

Do you remember the swans?

How they flew over us when we slept on the grass?

Do you remember the softness of the green,

the blue of the sky sheltering us?


Can you still remember?


Or am I alone? Without you,

without the swans of freedom?
