I got this poem printed out and put it on my the soft board on my wall. I look at it whenever I pass by it. And I read it. Though I know the words by heart. The simplicity is so beautiful. I am drawn to each verse which reeks of eloquence. Beautiful, Asmara. :heart:

I love your words. You say important things.
I hope that you are well. :heart:

I love how good you are at capturing nostalgia, and making it tangible for people who don't share your experiences. :D
