Matteo F. and my roots


Many events have borught me back to my roots these days.
A person, very dear to me, has flown to heaven and has brought me back on my feet on earth.
My life needs a safe landing, despite the desire to sail towards unknown, wonderful worlds.
My roots anchor me and make me love life much more.
I am this boat, and my sea is calm and crystal clear, despite my tears.
I smell the perfume of weeds and ask myself why I'm still here, breathing, while Matteo is no more among us. I don't know, I don't understand, but I live.
Farewell Matteo, I am sure that you too are sailing on an even more beautiful sea, with your new, wonderful boat, and your smile as a companion.

Tanti avvenimenti mi hanno riportato alle mie radici in questi giorni.
Una persona a me cara è volata in cielo e mi ha riportato con i piedi per terra.
La mia vita ha bisogno di un saldo approdo, pur desiderando navigare verso ignoti e meravigliosi mondi.
Le mie radici mi ancorano e mi fanno amare ancora più la vita.
io sono questa barca, e il mio mare è cristallino e tranquillo ora, nonostante le mie lacrime.
Sento il profumo delle alghe e mi chiedo perchè io sono ancora qui che respiro, mentre Matteo non c'è più tra noi. Non lo so,non lo capisco, però vivo.
Ciao Matteo, sono sicura che anche tu stai veleggiando in un mare ancora più bello, con la tua nuova magnifica barca e il tuo sorriso come compagnia
