I want to know YOU, like I know the colors of the rainbow.
Like I know the lyrics and the beats of my favorite songs.
Like I sense the scent of lilies all over the world.
Like I know every stop light, turn and highway,
when driving to you.
Like I know the difference between light and dark,
color red and blue.
Like I know the dates when seasons change
and years just go by…
Like I know your lips on mine, the murmurs of your soul.
I want to know you, like I know the days of the week.
Like I know math, Italian, French language and geography.
Like I know the tree- shaded house and the places where I grew up.
Like I know the country where my childhood
dreams were isolated, forever locked.
Like I know the muddy streets when walking to school.
Like I know the summer rain drying over my
body:(the rain kept me cool).
Like I know the angry wind when my ears froze.
Like I know the winter’s frosty nights without any heat.
Like I know the thin green blankets, making colder my little feet.
Like I know the pen’s ink stains on my right
fingers, when doing homework.
Like I know by memory, the poems of Victor Hugo’s.
I want to know YOU, like I know how to talk.
Like I know how to smile, to feel and to Love…
Like I know the feeling of missing you much.
Like I know the feeling of happiness,
when seeing, kissing you, and touch…
