WITH YOU, I LEAVE – When I am alone, and I dream on the horizon and words are missing, yes, I know that there is no light in a room when there is no sun, if you are not with me, with me. On the windows, show everyone my heart that you have turned on. Close the light you met on the street inside me. I will go with you. Countries that I have never seen and lived with you, now I will live them. I will go with you on ships across seas, which, I know, no, no longer exist. I will live with you when you are far away. I dream on the horizon and words are missing, and I know that you are with me. You my moon, you are here with me my sun you are here with me.
