I know this restless feeling inside you, why are you hiding your eyes? You’re twisting and turning in your sleepless storms inside. Come outside, be like you used to be! Just for one night.
I was just a child.
No, you were so much more…Tell me, what child spends hours in the late night talking to a lonely planet? What child prays for wings to fly far away from the only home she ever knew?
I was just scared.
But you smiled through your tears. You reached out your tiny hand to me, through darkness, coldness and desperation. You promised!
I was just lonely.
You had something so honest, so sweet and innocent in this loneliness of yours. Remember how hard you tried to understand?
I was just naive.
You opened the windows, ready to face the darkness and you saw light. Your smile was the prettiest I ever saw. I had to keep you smiling. So I draw little stars on the frozen glass. You created a shelter around my little stars. A heart. Yours.
I was just desperate.
I touched your face, it was icy cold. I decided to stay with you, to create a cradle of light around you. I wanted you to know, to deeply feel that you’re never alone. I gave you the brightness and the sparkling stars in a lifetime of white nights.
I was just blind. What do you want from me now, after so many wasted years?
To keep your promises.
To open the windows and to face the moonlight.
To become fearless when your world is cold.
To dare to love. More every day.
To have faith.
I will and I know. Who you are. I do remember now. Who I am…
He smiled and turned away, disappearing in the unseen face of the moon…
