The house is still there, and the roses. How happy we were then, how beautiful was our life, the sun was shining everyday…
This is what I want to remember, now, after all those years. Of course, I’d like to travel back, to erase what went on, to start again. I want to see your face, your smile, your invitation, at the little window. I want to be that other me, the good and wise one, which I became, finally, but then, still young, still loved by you.
But years have passed. I am wise, and old, soon I’ll be gone.
Alone, the house will stand, children will look out of the window, to a fresh morning, inhaling the perfume of red roses.
