"DIALOGUE AFTER THE STORM"

……’ I wrote to you, I talked to you,

But you are so far away yet close to me.

Will you be mine again after this storm ends?

Will we be freed, happy without the dessert winds?

 Blowing in my face

Free again from all the memories and sorrow

The fire, the dust and pain of the ones lost’?
