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.
