Poetry

Vuelve

If i come to you for advice

will you just

hold me

in an ethereal embrace?

Will you prop me up

and whisper

pure encouragement?

*** ***

Your lack of negative judgement

Your heart on your sleeve

Your love of my smile

My love of your love

My love of you

*** ***

You said goodbye too soon

You said goodbye as my brain

turned tail; as my mind

refused logic and clung to fear.

You said hasta luego mi niña

*** ***

Pero te necesito AHORA.

This poem merits an addendum!

Firstly, this is a prayer to my nana, the most wonderful and kind hearted person I ever met. She passed away on the 14th January 1997, in San Pedro de Alcantara, Spain.

Please though, feel free to akin this prayer to Whoever this makes you think of – my nana would insist!

Secondly, translations:

Vuelve – Come Back

Hasta luego – see you later / until then

Mi niña – my child (feminine pronoun)

Pero te necesito ahora – but I need you now
