It’s time to be happy

Today, I woke up leafless,
like rose without its dew,
like mountain without its star,
like grove without its river…

Today, I woke up without your caresses,
without your kisses and compliments,
without your pampering and hugs,
empty but full of boredom…

Today, I missed you like never before,
as always, as ever,
like without you,
I only feel cold…

But, also today, I started
to close my scar,
because although I remember you,
I was just an apprentice…
lost in a sea of forgetfulness…

Today, is the day to turn the page,
and stop to feel sappy,
because finally, it’s the time,
it’s my time to be happy…
