Painting by Martin Raabe, “Lovers”

WE SHALL MEET . . .

We shall meet after the end of world, you told me
When we’ll be just you and me, sunrise and sunset.

We shall meet after the end of the world, precisely
When we’ll be just we two, abyss within abyss.

We shall meet when all will pass through fire
And we’ll be ashes or we’ll be no more.

We shall meet again when everything makes sense
Without understanding why I was what I was.

VICTORIA MILESCU, Romania
