dear e.

happy voices from outside the house
my two girls are playing there
no need to say how proud i am
two or three years from now and then
they’ll be the same age
as we were when i was so in love with you i cannot say

sometimes i think about what could have happened if things had turned out a different way
well, i don’t regret a single day
but, dear e., what would life be like then?

life has taken us to different towns
and into different worlds
we‘ve each been going our own way then
very few times our paths have crossed
it was so long ago
but i still wonder what if, when, why and how …
