Like a child for no reason.

It happens that I get tired of my words
It happens that I get tired of my toil
For no reason."

"A soul mate is not the person
who makes you the happiest, but the one

Who conducts your heart to bang the loudest,
who can drag you giggling
with forgiveness from the cellar they locked you in."

Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.
Here I love you.
Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain."
