April Love

April Love

written by: Zanka Zana Bošković Coven

 

I shall tell you a story
Of an undreamt dream
I shall show the path
Over wild streams
I shall swear innocence
Of my burning wish

You will walk with me
In my dream of beauty
Showers filled with hope
Will rain over us
With a new Spring in our hands
We will keep our illusions
Unaware they last
Just for a moment

We will realize, it will be too late
That it was all a game
Of April the liar
Life is untrustworthy, love’s just a game
Into sadness turning
This crazy Spring
All so fast burning
