Stealth Visit

why do you visit

so stealthily

in the night?
after i have closed

the house,

prayed,

turned out the lights

and rested on my

right side.

are we only

of dream-visits

now

and wistful thoughts…

as maybe

we always were?

continents and oceans

away

powered by 

the spirit

of our ancestors

and our revered

home

land.

remembering bits

of love

and comfort

so hastily withdrawn

by separation

and

by

my

residence

in 

this hostile

domain.
