Second Letter

 

you’ve been back

in this country a

 

year now & still I

wait to see you

 

all I have received

is a letter telling me

 

you did the St. James

again with some friends

 

you made overseas I

remember when we did

 

that same track together

tramping through matagouri

 

thickets & cold swollen

streams where I kept losing

 

my footing but you were

always there ensuring I

 

didn’t get swept away

tumbling down mountains

 

to the sea

I need that –

 

someone who is there

to catch me & grab hold

 

before I fall
