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).
