My soul

My soul called to me

From somewhere far away

With a yearning I could not deny

For the colours of

Blue and orange

A passing bird’s sweet song

Reminded me of the home

I left

So long ago

As wave upon wave of grief and regret rose

Tumbling over me

From deep within the ancestral ocean

While on another shore

Through my tear syained eyes

I glimpsed

All the children dance

Hearts fully unbound

Loosened from sorrow

Joy washed through me then


Upon wave

Upon wave of it

And it was then I knew my soul

Never left

Was always

Waiting patiently

For me to awaken

From this long and difficult sleep

Of forgetting
