So Many Ways to Call You Back

Sometimes I wonder, sweetest love, if you
Were a mere dream in a long winter night,
A dream of spring-days, and of golden light
Which sheds its rays upon a frozen heart;
A dream of wine that fills the drunken eye.

And so I wonder, sweetest love, if I
Should drink this ruby wine, or rather weep:
Each tear a bezel with your face engraved,
A rosary to memorize your name ...

There are so many ways to call you back --
Yes, even if you only were a dream.
