Tomorrow

Tomorrow

Couple of minutes to midnight,
I sigh helplessly and fold the day in moments of life,
label it in pink and write on it “Expired”.

Another cold and long winter almost gone,
to be left behind and faraway,
summer will be here to breathe, to embrace.

One more “probably love” gone and
someone’s lonely heart broken,
but a dream maybe is on its way to come true …

A booked trip, expected with excitement.
Pale hope, but still hope, shading the eyes in green.
The wish of rain falling down and stars on the sky.

Laugh and tears, pain and sweetness,
secrets, friends, joy, family … I have them all here!
Just you, I don’t have you, but who knows, maybe tomorrow…

I do

I do

I believe it will be a day in the middle of May,
the rain from the night before will clear the air,
the past, the mistakes made once upon a time.
The sun will rise up to wish me “good morning”,
the light blue curtains will open a promise
of life with love and understanding.

Room full of giggling girls and Sprite, embracing
part of my unknown, yet beautiful beginning.
The sparkling shoes placed on my single bed,
the white, satin dress with lace-up ribbon closure
and astral designed straps, the flowers in my hands,
red roses, with the bloom of youth and romance.

Sitting on the old- fashioned arm- chair,
busy bees putting my curls in order and
hiding innocence and pearls in between.
My closed eyes ready for the make- up,
the flutter of the eye-lashes under mascara,
and the impatience : ” Are we ready to go?

The pride and the happiness in my parents hug,
seeing me pretty and grown, but still their baby-girl,
the reflection in the mirror, the approval : “Yes, perfect!”
Something old to keep the bond with my family,
something new to endure a forever of sacred feelings,
something borrowed to remind me, I’m not alone in this.

Something blue to keep the faith in the purity of the day,
and a silver sixpence in my shoe, I will have it all,
walking down the aisle with my father only half way.
The girls, dressed in red, opening the way to him,
standing to the altar, looking at me, expecting me.
Few steps to the “always” I’ve been dreaming about.

The words of the priest, the sip of red wine,
the tear in the corner of my eye, the hope and
the long awaited “I do”, followed by a kiss,
I believe it will all be in a day in the middle of May,
some May soon …

Inspired by “girls only” conversations.

Few stars, one moon, love, faith, you and I

 

Words again, flowing inside my head with the speed of light, again, restless. Sometimes I want to write it all down, but I don’t manage, because it’s way too much, the words come and go so fast. I’m sitting out on the balcony, in this unusually warm night and the traffic of thoughts is not letting me sleep, again. The sky, my faithful company, hugging me with thick darkness, the stars lighting my questions, tons of questions and I wonder how much will take me to count them all? The questions and the stars …

Lately I’ve been thinking of astrology cards. Do you know that these cards can show what’s in the future? Not so much as a definite prediction, more like possibilities to happen. Friend of mine does that, exploring astrology and its mysteries. She says: “If we grab the right opportunity, at the right time and place and the stars are on our side, we can succeed, if we learn the language of the planets, they can affect us in a good way”.

And as I think now, there is some logic in it. At night, when we try to free our minds and relax, when the sounds of the day are gone and quietness rules, maybe then the stars and planets can see clearly what events, what happenings are ahead of us. I am almost sure that the day I was born, Venus was right on top of the hospital where my mum gave a birth. How else I can explain the hopeless romance I carry with me all the time?

As I am sure, Venus was there too when I first met you, together with the Moon … that’s why my love for you is so deep, my emotions so strong, so … uh, so everything. Or why I, person of words, go absolutely speechless every time I have you near me? Probably because Mercury-the little, funny planet of communication, hides as soon as you and I get together, to enjoy the disappearance of my thoughts.

I wish Jupiter came to me earlier, to warn me how difficult it will be to love you, to keep you all mine, how much temptation, distance and time will interfere, when you go back across the ocean. I wish Saturn taught me how to face the excitement of each moment spent with you, how to remain calm when I miss you.

Maybe if I stay out here long enough and wait for the world to fall asleep, maybe then one of those bright little twinkles up there, will finally speak to me and tell me that I shouldn’t worry, that you and I will be not only today, but until the end of everything?

Or maybe I should forget about the stars, about the full moon and just go inside to snuggle next to you and let you kiss me “goodnight”, because I know when you do, no planet will make me doubt that you love me here and now …
