Lullaby #7

Vahni Capildeo

 

For the grieved and glad

 

Why did I make you wait so long?

Death is a passing state

Night comes late

The nature of a day is long

 

Strange angers come along

The street breathes us, we breathe the street

Why did I make you wait so long?

Death is a passing state

 

Sweet whispering

The street wears us, we wear the street

Too living to be late

Too dying to belong

Why did I make you wait so long?
