Two souls in two room in darkness far
apart in universe. They have never met
and yet they feel so close like one heart
and one soul. Around them the endless
cosmos making individual lives looks so
small and quickly passing, like a fleeting
flame from a match and –
…how do we in such a perspective get a
sense of purpose with your human life?
Only by being mirrored by the other –
because we can only expand together!
People need people. It’s human basics.
None of them wants to make the move
to turn on the light and break the spell.
It’s if they were in the same room. Or –
as if it is for real. (But what is “real”?)
Finally they say a polite goodnight and
leave. (And what will come is if it never
had occurred, this so rare closeness
between two strangers in the night.)
(Those short moments of fully life!)
(And they add a “take care” – it’s very
far from to express their true feelings,
but it’s what they have to settle for…)
Yet too much can be said in the dark
between two strangers coming close,
as words weighs less than a feather in
the outer space –
(it’s safe as long you not take the step
out in the light and make your words
come real – and you don’t want that!)
Still – a chord was struck and its tune
vibrates in the other’s soul hours after
the talk. Such small means as a random
chat and little humble love in two hearts
make the hard times possible to survive…
It’s January now, a new year and slowly
the light returns to Scandinavia, a few
minutes every day – but the impact on
people’s minds is tremendous.
And the bright snow outside my windows
dazzles my eyes, dust and wrinkles are
recklessly revealed. Yes, time goes and
“none of us gets any younger” – but still
life throbs in me and it still throbs in you!
Can you feel it in you, can you hear it?
The beat! Life throbs in us
and we must respond to it!
