Day 26 - One Poem a Day

Day 26 - Mourn

I was 16 
when I bathed 
your body 
for the last time

I was not
old enough
for anything

not even to
to pay 
your last prayer

We were searching for you
as we entered the mosque

Maybe you were 
in a different car
Maybe you were looking 
for the front door

Maybe you were asking
'where is home?' again
when you were already home

Maybe somebody left you behind

But as a matter of fact
You left
