We are also what we have lived

My dear Kylian,

 

Here is the first day of your long history of love with us,

 

A strength of character that leaves nothing of your story.

Your heart is fully aware of what you especially do not want to become.  

Far from the past that regret borders,  

you squeak as you clench your two fists as you bite.

I do not see in your eyes a young man abandoned by life,

but only cross your rage, which colored you with pain.

You closed your eyes to see nothing, you closed your eyes to cry to no longer see her.  

 

It is because we are also what we have lost,

That this long wound, which makes the sun evaporate in your life -

will one day bring your dreams to light.
