About a girl
full of life,
full of pain,
ready for the wind.

You always talk about the wind
how alive you feel when he touches you
when he touches your hair and guides them,
as only he knows and wishes.

I know that when your eyes are bright,
when your breath becomes more vigorous,
more hungry for life,
it’s because what you love more is coming: the Wind.

You wait, with your back straight and your hair undone
and you pray•  you pray for what lies ahead
sometimes you tell me about those moments
when you really feel alive.

Oh, I wish you knew!
How I wish you knew…

Knew how much alike you and the unmerciful wind are
He rushes and sweeps everything
He destroys, steals, kills...

And what a strange thing this is!
He always brings along a breath of life
a breath that keeps you here for just a little more.
Captivating, rushing, killing.
