“Sans toi, les émotions d'aujourd'hui ne seraient que la peau morte des émotions d'autrefois.”*

“Sans toi, les émotions d'aujourd'hui ne seraient que la peau morte des émotions d'autrefois.”*

A Poem by Roy

A whim, a flippant dream,
My eyes have seen today,
A redeemed me, on a shore,
Watching the surfs at play:
With your hand in mine,
And Silence: eternal, blissful.
Feels as if we’re here to stay.

But we both know that our time is past.
You should move on, and hence must I:
‘Tis but a fleeting minute for which
Our worlds, drifting apart,
Have come to rest, and say:
“Adieu, my love from an unknown land.
In this moment have we lived our lives;
But all miracles, like grains of sand,
Must in a moment slip away.”

And yet, I know,
Without you,
Today’s emotions would be the scurf of yesterday. *
