I do not know if I can touch you
The way I want,
The way I feel.
I do not know if I could look into your eyes
Because I am afraid
That you be able to see all the secrets of my soul.
My wings are a little black, and
You’ll probably run away, I know.
I do not know if I can wake up next to you
And wish for another day,
I do not know if I am going the right way
And if I make a mistake now,
Trip over my own words and deeds
I will fall
And never get up again.
I do not know why you’re here and who brought you,
What was the idea,
What was the thought of bringing you to me.
I do not know whether to thank him
Or prepare another box
For storing the memories away.
