Poem: To a Visitor to the Heavenly Kingdom

By: Adreyo Sen


We are forever young until
our smile first makes you smile
and we know our heart is you
and thus we know our heart to be
frail, and maimed, and perhaps
even broken.

And so we slip into your world
and feel for the first time
the rain tear our cheeks
and sunlight dim our eyes
and we know the morning crow
sings of sadness
when he cries.

And we grow to love your world
because we love you
and so know what it is to die,
and find ourselves
where we belong.
