18 YEARS OLD
A ray of light, a vivid memory.
A child’s face,
almost a woman now.
the extreme good that I feel for you bounded by blood.
With your wings now open,
you’re about to take the most beautiful flight in the blue sky,
You will glide on the isle of majority, waving at it with a smile.
My arms will hold you every time you’ll fall,
just get back on your feet and keep flying towards the sun that brightens your dreams.
And while I still cradle myself in the memories of your childhood, my pen writes to you
My wishes, read them quickly and then keep running in the winding road of life.
Please, stop and admire the beautiful landscapes that every once in a while you’ll find.
