Aspettare un anno

Ho aspettato un anno preciso.

Non sapevo bene se ti avrei rivisto, ma mi sono preparato per l’occasione: nel silenzio, ripercorrendo con la mente il viaggio attorno al mondo e scrivendo la dedica del libro con le aste delle lettere particolarmente inclinate a sinistra per l’eccessiva timidezza.

Sarei rimasto in attesa per un altro anno.

In ogni caso mi sentivo pronto e lo ero quando ci siamo incontrati.

Non potevo mancare di un passo, non uno sguardo distratto, o pensieri turbati. Serenità e saggezza di chi sa che l’aspettare alla fine porta suoi frutti.

Eccola la ricompensa: il tempo dell’amato che non è andato perso foss’anche per un solo secondo, l’essenza integra e totalitaria.

Nulla di più se non un impercettibile segno ma impagabile. Per me.

We Are the People -Empire of the sun

We can remember swimming in December
Heading for the city lights in 1975
We share in each other
Nearer than father
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyesWe are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now’ we can tryWe lived an adventure
Love in the Summer
Followed the sun till night
Reminiscing other times of life
For each every other
The feeling was stronger
The shock hit eleven’ Got lost in your eyesI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing nowI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing nowCan you remember and humanize
It was still where we’d energized
Lie in the sand and visualize
Like it’s 75 againWe are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl
All rejoicing in the world
Take me now’ we can tryI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing nowI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing nowI know everything about you
You know everything about me
Know everything about usI know everything about you
You know everything about me
Know everything about usI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing nowI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing nowI can’t do well when I think you’re gonna leave me
But I know I try
Are you gonna leave me now
Can’t you be believing now
