This is my first attempt at writing a poem in English, please don’t be too harsh on me.
This is dedicated to all those people who can make a difference.
At the beginning it was silent
and you came to me like a lurking shadow
I was a distant wish to you
you were nothing to me!
As you crawled into my life
affinity grew and I learned your name
I was love to you
you were a student to me!
As you grew and found your path
I was a mentor and observed your every move
I was everything to you
you were a joy to me!
When you finally felt happy with yourself
I gave you wings and set you free
I was a pillar of support to you
You were a proud moment to me!
You requested my permission for new adventures
I blessed your every wish as I knew you were my friend
I was a counselor to you
you were everything to me!
You grew confident and wanted your own castle
while I wondered where you were
I was a problem to you
you were a missing friend to me!
You started explaining yourself
as I requested what was our daily bread
I was an annoyance to you
you were a question mark to me!
As the distance grew bigger
and I started to miss your dreams
I was the person to avoid to you
You were a distant wish for me!
At the end it was silent again
You left with everything I had to give
I was an enemy to you
You were a blurry memory to me!
As you rejoice with your new family
and I wonder how you are
I am nothing to you
You are a buried treasure to me!
“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” Wooden, John
I have lived my perfect day many times over in my Second and Real Lives, and I am proud of every one of those days.
