I am here again

By: Yohanes Manhitu

The wind is playing now
with the leaves of the trees
growing in this little place,
where people come to pray.

Today I am here again.
And just like when I was here
in the years that have passed,
peace and silence I can find.

This is peace, not loneliness.
Even when you seem to be alone,
the universe is praying with you
before the grotto of the Madonna.

The wind is playing again now
and the leaves are all dancing.
Since the city is far away,
it’s time to say good bye.
