Rosary, by Francisco Bravo Cabrera
site: https://paintinginvalencia.wordpress.com/

I keep this rosary she left me in the pocket of my coat,
sometimes I count the beads of citrine yellow,
they never tell me much,
they keep their secrets,
they keep their peace
and though little they do speak,
they speak the truth.

To count the minutes, hours, days,
to travel through the years since you’ve been gone,
is like walking on the sands,
the clock has stopped at ten,
the sand clock whose bright sands have gotten old,
the old that’s now forever old again.

I know that you can hear the wrinkles in my voice,
my longing to be home…
I know you know well those last verses that I wrote
upon the surface of the sea,
with words that were a part of you and me.
The me that’s still round here,
the you that’s still so dear.

    Such a beautiful and provocative piece. Something precious to your heart and soul reminding you perhaps of who gave it to you. I really love these lines Francis.
