Vienna

To live
between tomorrow
and today
a yesterday
upon our shoulders
as an ocean wave
we carry
always carry
future and
forget about
the wings that
brought us here
we live
we love
we dance under
a setting sun,
then walk
away,
leaving
the miracle
that only can be
seen with our eyes
closed,
while
Vienna
always will be
there
