Bereft Father - Poem by Emmanuel George Cefai

I am now bereft
Near to twenty years

Some ups, much, much
more downs
your emigrating
made me.

now I roam as spirits
in the wild nights
to be in soul with you

    This poem speaks vividly to me. You address your father, dead some 20 years, intimately and quietly share disappointment but there is no trace of dejection just a wistful mood of time lost forever and a father's ghostly presence. And you realize your mortal life shares a spectral quality with the dead which makes communication
    poignantly possible.
