When?




When can I write with you
When? can I sit and know your words
as you know them
When? can I share with you a sigh
a sip of life, why
be it
that I should
die

When? can I walk with you
and be as you with eyes
the eyes that
can not see
another
When? can I feel
 your hand
in mine
as the hand blessed
 to know you as its gentle
 mother....When?
