*Into The Light*

A thousand days from now
the story is told
I can see
There is a rocking chair
on the porch
a book on the table
roses in a vase
I can see leaves
in a dance
whirling in the backyard
drunk of the wind´s essence
Our seagulls are back
screaming
flying in joy
Called by the spring
they escaped the darkness
tempted by a new journey
And I remember
your words

The gulls are us

A thousand days from now
the story is finally told
We have flown
into the light
