I don’t know you And I love you.
You in your office,
The new shy member
of my scientific enlarged family.
Tough love is love,
Critics show care,
Statistics give meaning,
Typos are enthusiasm.
Your comments are my religion.
Independent to give time a value,
I spread and resume
I distribute and concentrate
I hold tight and let go
Concepts and demands.
Time runs flexible
Behind questions and hypotheses.
What’s important is near
What’s important is protected
What’s important is always on my mind.
Little second and endless minutes
Decorate my day
While surfing the web of paying attention
To the greedy phone.
I feel their emptiness and their frustration.
I fill them with mindfulness and self-consciousness.
Leave me behind with no regret,
I will thank you when I will reach you,
Alone and proud,
Tired and older.
We share no path,
Yet we walk together,
And hold hands against the tide.
Dreaming at any time of the day
Opens a window in a stale room
Filled with old ideas and conservatives.
The struggle to plan the future
Is amplified at each step
By the stories and free advices
Who had little to explore in their days
But care and are afraid
Your caring surprises me
Today like every day
When I swim hard to float
And your love lifts me
In a second.
I hug you nonstop
And project my wishful thinking
For a future for two
Sprinkled with serious excitement
And old beginnings.
I move my hands with care
But my eyes look at the future
As if it was more appealing
Adrenalin and serotonin
Swim in improvisation and quick responses
Candid like swans
But frantic like their paws
Under the water.
