Absence

 

You weren’t there – to watch the sun

leisurely wake up at the eastern window

and see life take its first step

to savour the sweetness of its laughter

or to comfort its restlessness

You weren’t there – to give your voice

to the ancestral stories

when they and the moon came

or to sing a lullaby and put

night to rest

You weren’t there…
