You told me
You would sing a song for me.
I wait and count time ever since.

With a sweet smile,
You gave me assurance
that You would soon return.

How many times
has since the earth rotated?
And how many winters and springs
have since gone by?

You did not come
nor did You sing Your song.
And I keep weaving a web of consolation.

The small plant became a big tree,
mountains decayed into anthills,
the counting of time is coming to an end,
yet, I still imagine the sound Your footsteps approaching.
