Denouement


Theme song is playing
Slowly on the screen

And you understand
The show comes to its end

You have to leave
Through the exit
Very quickly

Someone is waiting
to replace you
patiently

on the corridor
you come across

with him
face to face

he reads the climax
in your face

same as with me
quick and fast

spread wide
long and high

with maximum
possible height

that is the climax of my life
now I play

like the theme song
very slow

if you wish
you may get ready

the door
and write on it ‘exit ‘

in colour red
and read my face, too

I am ready
Silently to be replaced

    This is life, we are coming and going. When we learned the lesson and we thought the other person, definitely we depart. That goes on between parents and children, married partners and friends, even work place. We can just say good by and start another way of life after we learned the lesson in each relationship. I always bless my teachers who touched my life, let it be good or bad, because without them I would not be the person what I am today. Through past relationships I became stronger, wiser and better.
