Your Precence - Poem by Aliyu Ahmad Madi

In your presence i have rediscovered my name
My name that was hidden so long under the pain of
separation
I have rediscovered the eyes no longer veiled with fever
And your laughter like flame piercing the shadows
Has reveled to of beyond the snows of yesterday
Ten years my love
With day of illusions and abandoned ideas
And sleep restless with alcohol
Ten years of suffering poured on me from the world's
breath
Suffering that burdens today with the taste of tomorrow
And turns jove into a boundless river
In your presence i have rediscovered the memory of my
blood
And the necklaces of laughter hung round our days
Days sparkling with ever new joys.
