Spring will always come

I am sitting in the corner of a room
In cloudy weather,
Where everything is white outside and
And freezing.
Inside I heard the whispers of two lovers.
I heard their dreams.
I saw the beauty of life through their eyes
While I was thinking about myself —
About my own feelings and views of life.

When I am happy
I feel like the luckiest person,
Like something will just come
And change everything.

Then someone wakes me up
And ends all my beautiful dreams.
Now I find inside me
Grasses under snow,
But passionate
For a new spring,
For a new start,
To laugh,
To dream,
And to live.
