Tita Lacambra-Ayala

Not willing to forget that I must leave
Something behind
Something that I don’t want to leave
Behind when I go

Is what gets me to come back
Each time when I come back
To see if it is still there –
What I left behind

And always my faith is restored
Always my faith and memory are
Restored when I come back to find
That what I left behind

Is still there waiting for me
To come and see if what I left
Behind is still waiting for me
