go there,
where you have to be.
.
here
everything will be all right
.
here
the vigil lamp is burning
i lighted it for you
i made it for you
and
for me.
.
here
the flame says a prayer
for your soul
and warms
mine.
.
here
the flame says thank you
for been here
says
thank you
for your warmth and light.
.
here
people see
in that-girl's face
warmth and light.
I wish you were
here
to see it
but
go there
where you have to be
don't worry
that flame
burning in the vigil lamp
says,
everything will be all right
.
here
and
there.

  1. There is some lovely imagery and a potent sense of misplacement in this piece.

  2. thanks :)

    But i don't get the " sense of misplacement" comment. My english are not that good so not sure what you mean. I play with here and there, and although "here" it feels like been "there". is that what you mean ? care to explain ?
