Remember Me

I was the child left behind

on the way to school

for walking too slowly and carefully

 to avoid stepping on fallen cherry blossoms

wait for me  

.

and while my mother bent down

to do my shoe laces

I bent down too

and hugged her tired back

hold me

.

I gathered scraps of wood

and discarded cables

to assemble an homemade guitar

which made my fingers bleed

hear my song

.

I was angel Gabriel

in the nativity play

now am stretched out on a cross

by the side of Christ

begging for paradise

remember me!
