My unseen heart

Wansee, Berlin
Wansee, Berlin


There was no music behind

calm and soothing ones,

nor the inspiring beats,

like in a three minute video.


There was no pat on the back

when everything went good

nor a hug

for the hard times.


There were a million silent cries,

that  went unheard

A million fear,

that went unseen

A million struggles against your ego and might,

that went unnoticed,

A million times you fell

and looked at me and got up

knowing there needs to be strength.


I do not understand now

Maybe someday I will…

But please be there then

Among those millions faces;

a face, smiling and proud

as you always did…

For I did not see you, Mom

But I do now…
