to understand

I did not understand

being little more

than weened

the empty house

furniture carpets gone

all this space cold

no food no mother

something gone wrong

& some time later

I found her in another home

another child another man

& I tried to understand

feel some connection

warmth from her hand

& when I visited again

different people living there

no forwarding address

no letter no note

no ideas as to where

but I did begin

to understand
