Come Back - Poem by michal jongkind

Let the joy of your memories
kiss me like dew drops on a forgotten petal.
For the essence of your presence
is better than a costly fragrance
Your name is salve on my wounds,
therefore my heart longs for you,
Come back to me!

I will chase after you, but only an empty shell remains

Let your aroma seep through my pores,
like wood drinks water from the brook.
For no lavished chambers, nor abundant
riches, shall repair my broken heart.
Your love has gone with the breeze,
therefore my heart longs for you,
Come back to me!

I will remember you, but it seems to fade when you are gone

Let our lives grow together and embrace
each other, like entangled vines
For you have rested your soul,
and mine is covered with a veil of sorrow.
Your footsteps in my heart are missed,
therefore my heart longs for you,
Come back to me!

I will love you, but I know you will not come back,
I will cherish what has been left behind, but I know you will not come back.
