What Remains

The time will come when you’ll realize
The long and lonely nights
Have not put in your heart
The seeds of bitter sorrow;
That will be the beginning
Of the end of your sufferings.

Have you thought why the winter wind
Is fragrant with April’s scent,
Though hyacinths are long gone;
Why does the falling rain
On empty wind-swept streets
Move you to sudden tears?

Something remains deep inside you
That keeps your heart afloat;
Open the fastened windows.
The skies are overcast:
Let the rain fill your roots,
Dream the green dreams again.
