forever blue

forever blue

Tu nao estas comigo em momentos escassos:
No pensamento meu, amor, tu vives nua
--- Toda nua, pudica e bela, nos meus bracos.
--- Manuel Bandeira

stillness dreams
in falling snow
nostalgic echoes touch
the tender discovery
of your remembered nearness…
i vanish somewhere
between the mingling frost
lost voices of fairy tales
and a lonely blue dream---
to forever hold
and be held
by you…
