Apart - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

How long apart
How long apart
The seas in front
They roared
Rattling the pebbles:
Wild and lone
Stood I on the shore.

I saw the fading
That went with my ageing
Yet verse was still young
Yet suffering.

I hear
Bells from churches
In the distance
Ringing
Ringing
Yet my verse was still young
Yet suffering.
