A Stranger Are You Now?

by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
(Manila, Philippines)




Yes, it's you...

I think of as I rise and see the morning sun

Seeping through this curtain I made not so long ago

Thoughts of you fills my mind

As my fingers deftly feel the soft satin threads

Like the many colours of the rainbow

Vibrant and alive!

~~~~

Canvas of lush greens and daisies

You lovingly adorn my hair

Caressing each strands

As it falls softly on my cheeks

Butterfly smiles painted on my lips

My heart in your hands.

~~~~

Yours forever in realm and dreams

Yet when I opened my eyes not a minute ago

Your hand outstretched I could not reach

Your voice so soft, so sweet

Yet I could not hear

Your face I could not recognize.

~~~~

A stranger are you now?

Like a faded photograph

Brown and brittle with age

Like a worn out hat

That should be hung and forgotten?

~~~~

So set me free

And let me be

If you would please

Our years have passed

So long long ago

Let it be goodbye this time

No more goodnight dear

Just...Goodbye.
