To my daughters Maria 7 and Huriya 5 who are in Addis, awaiting permission to reunite with me in Sweden.

When tightly gripped by feelings of loneliness
Nothing soothes better than the eyes of a child
They symbolize the images of love
Captured in a frame of romantic bliss

A look at my daughters´ eyes quietens my soul
Delivering me from the pain of seclusion
Sheltering my heart with a fence of peace

But the sparkle is dead deep in their eyes
As my eyes only meet theirs in a portrait
Dangliing on the walls of my cold room
Warmed with the hilarity of blissful dreams

Abdi, This poem was written with such love of a child. No one can imagine your pain and sorrow, not being with your children. Separated by so many miles and the danger that faces them daily. I pray for their safe return to you and you are once again united as a family out of harms way.
Your words always move me..
Peace, love,and light,
Amber "V"
