Mildred – Si j’étais

If I were

If, if, if, if…
For me, say Mildred
the raindrops of the “if” are not impossible dreams.
When they fall one by one
in the heart of the one who writes,
I catch them as a gift from heaven, I make them mine,
I sing them without fear.
With the grace received from the poet’s pen,
to the sound of my voice and my guitar,
I become the “delicate breath of a small stream of air”,
I truly cover “The Land of Infinite caresses”,
I am the wind, I am the sun, I am the rain.
And I conjugate “if I were” in the present, to live without waiting for the beauty of the world.
