Love is a promise
kept like time, spread like ashes;
everyone remembers, no one knows.
Secrets are a kind of love,
held like sand, spread like glass;
no one remembers, everyone knows.
We don't talk. We are careful,
protecting ourselves for each other,
Patience is also a kind of love.
I don't know why.
