There was a time

There was a time we could seat together in a circle on the same floor.

There was a time I could smell the person near to me.

There was a time I could see all the 12 muscles shaping a smile.

There was a time we could feed the trust among us through contact.

There was a time we could tell a story in a circle,

all our breaths were mixing in making sounds and songs.

There was a time we could see each other in quite big groups,

and see our whole bodies and share the same air in the same place.

I wish we could come to this time again, without fear, one day, soon.

I wish when it will happen,

we will be grateful for the simple and uncomparable feeling

of touching, smelling, dancing, playing with each other.
