Strings for a rainy day

Like the cold rain drops
Your nonwords fall upon my heart,
and the wind blows among the grey branches
waiting to leaf.

If there is silence in me,
I owe it entirely to You,
if there is something long and black
wrapping my horizon

it’s my dreams like flights of crows,
the way they’ve pierced through the night,
unwanted, disunited, unabandoned,
unprepared for the slowly arising day.

If there is something good in me,
I don’t know where it comes from,
if there is something beautiful in me,
I don’t have the strength to lift it up to You.

Like the cold rain drops
Your nonwords fall upon my heart,
and all my questions, and all my regrets,
and all my despair dies in me,

leaving room for springtime,
leaving room for the sun to shine
over my solitude,
over our sadness…
