Joyful Reunion


Relating sounds and tones to yesterday's memories,
attaching meaning to every word spoken in conversations of Italian.
Piercing images collect emotions, placing them crosswise in my heart, tearing me apart as tears spill endlessly into hazy visions.
Beginning over again with every thought of family gone beyond before me, waiting heavenside for my arrival.
A joyful reunion at last fulfilled with peaceful recognition.
