Ukraine - July, 1994

Night Sky

Before I came

I knew not why

and yet I knew there was a reason


Beneath a blue Ukrainian sky

I found chestnuts

not yet in season


I crossed the Dniepr

I crossed the bridge

One life became another


My brother, my father,

My friend and my soul,

Much more than simply a lover


Before I came 

I knew not why

And yet I knew there was a reason


Now I’m here

And now I know,

It’s you who are my reason.
