The song of endless affection...
You’ll toss and turn,
befriend and unfriend,
forgive and offend,
distance and come close again.
And then you meet the ones
in whom eyes you look
and decide that : “oh Lord,
these are the ones I wanna be friends with
The kind of forever
that is no longer
a reckless wish of teenagehood
but a tenacious commitment to
embark in the threads of youth
while attemptimg to
to keep each other warm in a world
that can't stop getting colder.
A patchwork made of trust
respect and endless affection
in all forms,
in all states,
for all the good reasons.
After that you’ll start wondering how meeting new people was ever more appealing to you than achieving this state of familiarity with people whom blood’s color is different than yours.
People who gave you something that haunts you when they're not around
Because, my dear friend, through the darkest nights
when I'll keep switching my night lamp on and off
-as if to chase off the ghost of loneliness-
on and off
I will remember you
and I'll think about the taming of souls
the soul prints on heart shells
I'll think about the broken glasses and the fixed ones
about the break ups and make ups
and there will be this line from a song that'll keep playing in my head
over and over it goes:
"you are loved you are loved more than you knoow".
On and on it plays
'til I fade into a deep sleep
on a bed of satisfaction.
blanked by endless affection.
My dear friend your love is my lullaby.
My dear friend, may you always be surrounded
by people who know how to play that song
with the chords of your heart.
with endless affection.
