The Great Beginning

by Alexander Iscenco, Moldova, ELP 2013

There is the end Of everything. In heart and soul It points its sting.

It was just yesterday, When we said “Hi!”. But now it’s past... We say “Good bye!”

“It’s time to leave, We say in whisper, The time has passed Like sudden twister”.

We hug each other, We kiss in cheeks. But reasons to stay Our mind eagerly seeks.

I hold your hand, You hold mine too. Still, vicious time Breaks boldly through.

I turn away To hide a tear. “I’ll miss you...much...” From you I hear.

I walk away, You stay...alone. The time has passed, The time is gone...

This is the end Of the entire thing. No dance to dance with, No song to sing.

But is this so? No...I have a feeling That this is only The great beginning...
