I Ask The Sun

written by: Dinka Bednjacic


And I ask the spring sun
to linger on my body
warm me up
while I ponder over
autumn harvest,
vineyards drenched
with olden songs
in my mother's land,
and I -
I won't be there

I plead with many
to accept apology
for failing to bring back
a thousand gifts
like I promised
in my green years -
decades ago

I ask all the people
I loved and lost
whose features is
harder to remember,
to show mercy
upon my soul
for childish white lies

And I ask
divine light
to shine -
keep me alive
let me sit in
the earthly garden
a little longer

Now, when every season
of life
weighs down
on my bone-weary
