Random acts of kindness

Karakoy, Istanbul. 2012.

The angel should wake me
I’ll be gone, never to be seen again
And the lights will fall
The waves will come to peace
The leaves will fall to the ground
Only to give life again

I never want to be found
I’ll read the book once more
While the sun stops shining
Another day has gone
And shadows will remain
Consuming us all

All we have in life
Is each other, she said
I did not know better
All we have in life
Is our love, she said
I made a big mistake

All I have now
Are random acts of kindness
By random strangers
Trying to hold me together
