whenever I see you i’m thinking of him i greet you you greet me we talk and we talk and we talk we are silent because we are thinking of him we are silent so long ago it is almost forgotten i think it is ten years you say it is twenty we both have forgotten for that is much better it soon will be thirty we keep on forgetting it was on a day that was much like today it was grey it was cloudy no blue in the skies but neither did rain fall and to our surprise we saw specks of a rainbow we searched and we found it the hole in the clouds i know not the season because it was cloudy it felt like the winter when snow had all melted but also like summer when sunshine was missing and we were together together with him i still do recall that it was on the third but i know not the month and i know not the year or the day of the week but whenever i see number three written down i am thinking of you i am thinking of him i still do recall how that day did begin when it all felt exciting for we were together together with him our lives seemed so splendid our lives seemed so good and our lives seemed eternal for you and for me and especially for him we three went out strolling although it was freezing but it was not raining so we went out strolling together with him one question keeps nagging us who is to blame for this this could be my fault or this could be your fault or this could be his fault yes this could be his fault we did it together yes i did it you did it he did it too they asked us what happened but we just kept silent they asked and they asked us but i just kept silent and you just kept silent yes we both kept silent too long and too guilty we found not the words not for me not for you not for him we’re now linked together forever connected forever connected with you and with him whenever I see you i’m thinking of him
