EMBERS

I almost lost you.

They said nothing survives when the banks have flooded.

But I waited. I saw you.

I saw where you should have been.

I prayed. I fasted. I waited.

When the land caught aflame they said there will be nothing left.

When the bushed burned and pushed embers into the night,

I stood. I saw you.

I stood in the night and watched a country burn,

But I did not leave.

You were still there.

I saw you.20180415_031458-01
