I look in the mirror
Imagine a world close to you
A chair set in front of the sun
Looking at warm sunshine

The tree is broken
After a cold winter
There is no voice except
The sharp intake of breath

The situation is unchanged
Unmoved
Days and days are gone to destiny
Eyes and eyes see each other
Without touching

A voice comes to me
I am here
It is unknown to me
It is too much
