I Am Here


You went too far
To hear my heart cry,
Folarin my friend,
Where are you?
I heard my heart's cry
Echo in the silence of your absence.
Folarin my friend,
where are you?

I am here.

I am here, you say
And all my past hurt and pain
Melt like candle before heat.
But now that you are here,
Folarin my friend,
Are you here to stay?

I am here.

Folarin my friend,
Here we are today,
Folarin my friend stay,
Folarin please stay,
Don't go, dont go away,
Please be here to stay.

I am here.

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
