In You Presence - Poem by Kurt Behle

In your presence I discovered my name
My name that was hidden under the pain of separetion
I discovered the eyes, no long veiled with fever
Your laghter, like a flame piercing shadows
Has revealed Africa to me

Beyond the snows of yesterday
Nine months, mother
With days of illusion and shattered ideas
Sleep made restless

Inhaling the suffering of the world
Burdens today with the taste of tomorrow
And turn love into a boundless river

In your presence
I discovered the memory of my blood
The necklaces of laghter hung around our days
Days sparkling with new joy...
In Your Presence Mother
