We could talk with waves
Our words would rolling down the cliffs
Our whisper ran through the pines
hiding playfully behind the wet stones
Our laughters were merged
at sunsets above the Adriatic
murmuring lightly
through the whiteness of sea foam

We could touch the stars
in the nights
and sail endlessly through our fantasies
We could rejoice in memories we never had
mourn the cries of seagulls
in their strange sorrows

We could swim far away from the coast
pretending to be fearless
of what is hidden in the depth
We were two dots on the horizon
while our hearts would banged wild
revealing our foolishness

We could do it all
And now we are dead
buried by the tide of time
You are no more
and I was given the silence
A deaf solitude in the darkness

The murmur of Adriatic
now defiantly streams
only in the veins
