If, My Love…

***

If my days don’t dawn,

And I turn into shadows,

Would you sieve me from the dark?

 

I would be the star,

Who always shines upon you,

Until you beam like the moon.

***

If I’m buried ‘neath,

thick layers of frozen ice,

Would you still come and find me?

 

I would be your spring,

Thawing you with glisk mellow,

Until you blossom,my love.

***

If my heart forgets,

All the stories we’ve woven,

Would you bury them in vain?

 

I will rewind time,

Narrate every single one,

Until your heart echoes them.

***

 

If I fall asleep,

Never to see the sunrise,

Would you shed tears by my grave?

 

I’d become your dream,

And walk with you holding hands,

Always in the realm afar.

***

Here are the sedoka guidelines:

Two three-line stanzas
5 syllables in the first line and 7 syllables in the second and third lines.
First stanza is a question by one lover
Second stanza is an answer by the other
So it’s traditionally a love poem (and often a collaborative work).
