First snow tonight
On the 27th of October
The snow absorbs the noise of the street. Not a soul outside even early in the evening. Life in winter has its own charm. The cold seems to calm us down. Leaving behind those hectic summer nights. While laughs and talks resonate all night long. Keeping everybody awake.
I am having my third cup of tea. You are on my mind. I remember the time when we were on the mountains. When all around us were beautifully white.
And my love was the purest. Like the snow that night.
We walked down the village looking for a place for dinner. It was icy cold and I hung on strongly to your arm the whole time. I was so closed to you and I felt so warm
I remember I wiped gently the tiny snow flakes. Delicately posed on your lips. The cold made me feel like telling you all about my love.
I remember you was teasing me all the time. And told me that I had a good life. Traveling here and there. And because I was free and I always did what I wanted. You saw me that way and it was fine. In your eyes I could be anything.
I remember we were the last one to stay in that restaurant. We talked and could not leave.
I remember each second of that dinner. Magical night and it was probably the night I knew I would love you forever.
All the way back I slipped on the icy snow. And you caught me each time. Your arm was strong and you held me tight. You kissed me in the elevator of the hotel.
Snow always reminds me of you. Snow has the taste of my endless love for you.
On that mountain I knew. It was not only love. And I had said that so many times to myself. It was self-redemption to love you.
Snow will always remind me of us.
Tonight snow came early.
But I already thought of you. Even before the very first flake came down. From the dark sky.
