You are there for her
having stepped over seas
left all behind, life packed
in boxes, thousands of pages
testify of loneliness, abandoned
exiled in paradise, estranged
complaints silenced, repression
smashed, a stranger to yourself
you set out, chivalrous
fate of providence guides
resonances of childhood echo
Latin languages sound, submerged
into literatures, searching for exits
in every text, signs, so many parts
bewildered in elsewhere, alienated
yet you have come boldly, for her.
