The Shadow of Your Smile

The shadow of your smile
when you are gone
Will color all my dreams
And light the dawn
Look into my eyes, My love, and see
All the lovely things
You are to me

Our wistful little star
Was far too high
A teardrop kissed your lips
And so did I
Now, when I remember spring
All the joy that love can bring
I will be remembering
The shadow of your smile 

(The Shadow of Your Smile - Astrud Gilberto)

Ich vermisse dich, Ruh
You and your (sometimes) silly antics, and your waving when I go, and those little creases on the corner of your eye when you showered the world with your warm, comforting smile. That song up there, somehow reminds me of you. Maybe it's Astrud Gilberto, maybe it's the lyric...or maybe just about anything can easily connect my random mind to you.

I don't even know what to write, aside from that simple sentence. Ich vermisse dich. That's it. 

deine Vera

Ps. in case you're too tired to play the dictionary game, that sentence means 'I miss you'

Astrud Gilberto - The Shadow of Your Smile (1965)

I love reading Unwind. It might be the most thrilling dystopian fiction I have read since The Hunger Games, and it sets the bar higher eversince. The premise of Unwind is highly unlikely : Abortion is forbidden, but there is an option ...
