BREGJE























Written on the 'La Gola' beach


Your name, lovely daughter
is brilliantly shining;
two syllables only:
please never feel lonely.



I could write much more
in lines filled with sorrow
but that's for tomorrow's
or yesterday's shore.



I just want to tell you
in soft simple words
that you are my Bregje:
a word sometimes hurts.
