Even Then

Even when the sunset meets the sea,
even when a sigh falls restlessly,
even when the leaves
scatter on the ground,
even when the dark
closes all around,
yes even then.

Even when the sand is at our feet,
even when the wolves are on the street,
even when the snow
buries all in white,
even when the past
calls to you at night,
yes even then.

Even when the smile beings to wane,
even when the sky falls down as rain,
even when the green
slowly turns to grey,
even when the rest
have all gone away,
yes even then.
