If the Sun would Lose its Light




Impression. Sunrise, Claude Monet 1872

If the sun would lose its light


If the day would lose its night


if the sea would lose its salt


If the forests would lose their trees?



If there was nothing left


but rising waters


diminishing dunes


and flowers made of stone?  



If we had met earlier


We would not have this debt


to the unknown, the unpracticed,


the fearful and the scared.



If we had never kissed


I would have never known


what I could have missed


If we had never loved.
