Abbi cura di me

di Simone Cristicchi

(Roma 1977-*)

… È bello essere al modo, pensa Simone mentre accarezza senza toccarla la sua immagine e quella di Stefano, tenendo uniti, nel filo delle sue mani, finito e infinito.

È un momento da fermare, e in cui fermarsi. È un respiro di assoluto.

Non siamo soli. Mai lo saremo.

Esiste una casa, un senso, una scintilla, un amore. Esiste per tutti. Esiste per sempre.

Adesso apri lentamente gli occhi / E stammi vicino / Perché mi trema la voce / Come se fossi un bambino. / Ma oltre l’ultimo giorno / In cui potrò respirare / Tu stringimi forte / E non lasciarmi andare / Abbi cura di me.
