Chez Sami

Chez Sami is known to some of you
And maybe visited by a few.

A nice restaurant, by the sea
Where each wave brings memories to me.

It is not easy to visit an old familiar place
Without noticing my loved one’s empty space

I can’t hear those sitting around
As I listen to the waves’ sound.

I am immersed in moments of the past;
Happy ones that sadly did not last.

I miss my daughter very much
A feeling that time can not erase or brush.

This place also reminds me of Dad,
Whose absence as well makes me sad.

I wish I could stand up and shout
And Tell them what my silence is all about.

But I have to keep my feelings subdued
As breaking up their happiness will be rude.
