A Stranger Are You Now?
by Maria Isabel Cecilia Pascual
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
