avez-vous entendu des echos ?
les choses se sont rappelees du passe
avez-vous entendu le silence ?
un silence qui continue au bout.
un mot
un reve
un echo
un cri percant silencieux.
j'ecris ce que je me rappelle
pensees
moments
tous ont ficele ensemble
j'ecris un mot a beaucoup
sans reponse
cri percant silencieux.

sans respect
je souris toujours
sourire des memoires
sourire des moments
sourire des choses…
cela le guerissent tout.

je souris pensant a votre rire
et le silence dans votre froncement des sourcils
je me rappelle le regard dans vos yeux
je me rappelle les larmes qui sont tombees
comme j'ai lentement essuye le mien

maintenant.
j'ecris.


-------------- in english.... ----------

have you heard echos?
things remembered from the past
have you heard silence?
a silence that continues to last.
one word
one dream
one echo
one silent scream.
i write what i remember
thoughts
moments
all strung together
i write a word to many
unanswered
silent scream.

without regard
i still smile
smile from memories
smile from moments
smile from the things...
that make it all whole.

i smile thinking of your laugh
and the silence in your frown
i remember the look in your eyes
i remember the tears that fell
as i slowly wiped mine

now..
i write.

J'ai appris le francais de base quelque chose beaucoup plus complique que cela... est bon dur.

Très. Aussi longtemps que vous ne me dites pas "aimez le fromage" ou "où est la salle de bains?"
