Arrived, Never to Stay

Arrived, never left
For peace was found in you
Always in pursuit, elusive, momentary
Drawn into the light for darkness seize

Arrived, never left
And like a Finnish song in a summer, hämmentävä
African hats tempting in all its colours, resisted
Summer was over, lavender wilting

Arrived, never left
New and unknown, controlling
Words with confidence, questioned
For brevity is the language of pain

A coffee maybe one or two
For in silence, we speak
With no intent for goodbyes
But never to stay, never to stay
