Dying Embers

I’m forgetting your face and your smile,
I try to recall the shape of your eyes.
You appear in my mind for a while,
But you fade away, everything dies.	

I’m forgetting the tone of your voice
And the way you said to me “Hello!”
Come to feel what I feel, and to rejoice, 
And renew all that happened years ago.

So, don’t delay, come to me here now
With the setting sun, or a starry night,
With a drop of rain caressing my brow,
With the wind, or the still, falling twilight.

Don’t let lonely days separate us. Arrive
To kindle a fire in my heart anew,
I’ll bend over dying embers to revive
The fading flame and my memories of you...
