Sofia Kioroglou – On the death of my father

By  | 

On the death of my father

You are gone and with you I cannot converse
my prayer our only communication channel
This phone call will certainly reach you

My cries no longer heave
I have started to play the piano again
got that pixie cut with long bangs

I know you are well
I can feel you
I see you smile
