Please take my hand and take me back to these shadows,
to the sand under my feet in the cold river water.
Please take me back to the caravan I wanted to go
on a trip with you, to the apple tree that was my summer umbrella.
Take me back to when you stole apricots from the neighbors
tree for me and to the ripe raspberries that fell apart in our hands.
Take me back to the wind and to the fields that
lifted me up in a universe only you and I knew.
Take me back to all of this,
just for a moment or forever.
