Patiently yearn



All the prayers and all the false hopes

All the expectations and all the answers

All the loving darts and all the footnotes

propelled high so to pierce the stratosphere


Our neighbour Time, called by some death,

runs in our midst, leaving behind a lifeless flatness

and a nebulous sense of wrongness

Cut off from our past; alienated from the earth


"Did you ever know, dear, how much you took away with you when you left?

You have stripped me even of my past, even of the things we never shared."


Crying Restoration from the depth of our lungs

A sudden return to what life used to be

but Absence scolds us and points at the crumbs

“You’ve got to accept and embrace normality”


But how could an amputee do so

when one has to re-learn how to live

How to do so when one has little to give

One’s whole being choosing to hide so to lie low


"Did you ever know, dear, how much you took away with you when you left?

You have stripped me even of my past, even of the things we never shared."


“so many roads once; now so many culs de sac

But even in the dead end, one has something to learn

Even things we’ll never get will be lessons to unpack

Teaching our ever changing hearts to patiently YEARN
