Besa Dede


I went away from you one day
My shoulders trembling, my legs shaking.
I cried and cried and cried.
The ocean put a barrier between us.
My pain made the ocean deeper, my tears brewed it saltier…

I went away from you, my dear ones,
... I left, keeping my head back …

And as I drag my heavily packed suitcase
Through the corridors of this huge airport,
I scarily think as of who will take care
Of my poor memories
That painfully were scarred by time.

I came at the land of the sun, at the land of the snow,
At the place of the dreams of the fervent immigrants.
And alas, I'm naked!
My memories remained beyond the ocean.

Like a baby I will slowly pace.
But my footsteps will be felt above and beyond.

I will bring you happy memories,
You then, will ease your sadness.
And I ... I will finally dry up my tears ...

    Even the symbols between each word didn't mar this. Although I did wonder if those symbols had some meaning that I was missing. Have you read mine - I Cannot Return -

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
