To Know by Neesa Suncheuri

Would it ever happen, that I would see more
Than what the sun illuminates when it rises?
And what is behind that horizon…
Whereto does the vanishing point lead?

Would I ever know the details
Of a story after it finishes?
Whether it is yours or mine
We, lovers united, care to know the other’s.

Would I ever dare to play the game
Where love is slow to grow?
When time is the one who keeps its secret,
So many of my wishes unsolved.

Would it ever occur that circumstance,
could separate my life from my joys?
There’s nothing stronger than the force of my ways.
I’m a prisoner to failed trials.

I desperately need a place where Nature
Could show me all her glory.
She develops life with sun and rain,
And I need her intervention too…

so terribly.
