Stars, sparkling in the dark skies,
Wind, blowing over, the Aegean seas,
Twilight sets the sleep awakens
Rolling mountains, moon lit heavens!
Sixty-six miles passed ‘n anxiety
How many more, ‘n sobriety!
Yet not an adult, euphoric,
Guided, nurtured, life lessons, hypnotic!
Parents faded, dissolved over time,
Four of family, ancestry, sublime!
Residues of pain, ‘n pathos,
Shadows deep, crimson scars, repose!
My heart beats, ebbing, I hear,
Destination near, yet too far,
Lord, will I hear the whistle,
Or miss the train, ‘n become invisible!!
The gentle breeze over the seas,
Smell of grass roots, cease!
Last solace, beneath the silent glen!
Disrupted by the death knell!!
