goodbye

rain, rain and more rain. what would it be of my body, buried in a mossy tombstone, without water that washes my sin.

and my phantom would wander that eternal and autumnal forest, even if it's only once again, from the beginning to the end.

i would wake from my grave to walk for the last time to the stream of the freshest water that my hands had ever touched.

it leads to a small lake surrounded by no more than spruce and stone, with a row boat, to end up as far as possible.

i guide myself through the mist using the voices that have always called me. if i don't see you anymore in earth i hope that this is my destiny.

because there's no place more silent, no fresher air, no calmer soul than mine in this place.

back to the forest, i take the path. i know where it will take me but i walk it as if i had never stepped on it before.

and my already ethereal body would present itself there, in front of the cabin that appears in all of my dreams.

preserved wood with a small porch, it is enough. i sit in the rocker bench singing songs in my mind.

it's a homely cabin, it is small, but it has all i need: to be alone and, for the last time, in peace with my rested soul.

my eyes would see for the last time this place destined for me. oh, how will i miss the views to my small garden.

and through one of the windows i can see giant mountains covered in trees and mist of my same transparency.

i might have left behind my body but i know the raindrops will still calm my soul, even if it's just one, just one last time.

and i would sleep in that bed surrounded by you, listening to your voice to leave you forever, even if it's not what i promised.

i would gaze at everything amazed, the beauty of nature, and my soul in its purest state. i leave you behind, my dear.

and with my last breath i go back to my eternal resting place. goodbye, it was a pleasure to meet you.
