It took him 40 years and more
to love the place where he comes from
and now he got back
and everybody calls him: poet

he's almost sixty years old
left the family when he was young
set on climbing over the fence
he was held behind

it seems
just a man passing by
young boys try to catch his eyes
but his sight is far beyond
close to the things they still
don't know

his presence plays a tiny sound
that sorrounds him like a cloud
his hands are fragile, shivering leaves
the pace is proud, the mind is free

he tried out drugs and felt the fear
has been down'n out for years
now he's back and the people barely know
he's dead

No one will name a road after him
least of all will read the books he wrote
for all those he has lost
for his mother who always called him: poet
for his mother who always called him: love

he always celebrated life
before vanishing in the tide
of time, now he
rests beneath a stone
saying: don't bury your roots
unless you wanna make them bloom
unless you wanna watch them grow
