"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry



The nights of wine and beauty
when you were hiding your face in my
Guinness coloured hair
are to be someday reinvented.

Life flows, trees bloom
and empty glasses get broken,
your table is deserted  just like your life
while I try in vain to intoxicate myself with illusions.

It would take a miracle to retrieve you
yet love will bring me one day to where
I will find again your strong essence
In the entrails of the smallest bottle.
