Fragments of Love

1

Come on.
Get into the car.

Mommy isn’t coming.
Say goodbye.

Yes mommy loves you.
Wave to her.

We are going to live with grandma.

Is mickey ok?

Yes, he’s happy
Purring.

Mommy
I love you!

2

Like olives?
Black ones,
Pitted?

Yes!
I love them

I have a jar.
Want to share them with me?
We can climb up behind the rocks.
Can I have a kiss?

I love you!

3

Standing on the cliff,
Holding you,
Looking at the sea.

I’m pregnant
What should we do?
We’ll get married.

I love you!

4

Sir?
Yes?
You have a brand new baby girl.

The sun just rising over the lemon grove.
Everything bathed in gold
By the warmth in my heart.

I love you!

5

Hi everybody
It sure was cold walking home in the snow

I don’t love you anymore
I want you to leave

But.
I love you.

 

 

6

Standing in the shadows
A cold winter evening
I can feel your warmth close to me
How I want to hold you
How I want to kiss you

I love you!

7

Where are we?
In my apartment.
How did I get here?
You drank really a lot last night.
I brought you here on the bus.
You don’t remember?
No.

Here.
Lie down with me.
Let me hold you.

I love you!

8

Screaming, moaning
Push, push harder!

Silence
Push, push harder!

I see it!
I can see it’s head!

Push, keep pushing!
Almost there!

A girl!
It’s a girl!

Our baby girl!

I love you

Do you remember that evening
So  many years ago?
Standing outside in the cold?
I stood so close to you.
I felt your warm breath.
Why didn’t you hold me?
Why didn’t you kiss me?
Couldn’t you feel it?

I love you!

10

Glanced out the window.
A bright crescent moon
Slipping behind a cloud,
Moving on,
No regrets.

I love you.

***********

When you love someone
Always tell them
Have no regrets
