I ’M NOT RETURNING HOME / Poem by Ada Aharoni

Poem by Ada Aharoni
 
 
I ’M NOT RETURNING HOME
 
I’m so sorry, my love,
I’m not returning home
for I can’t return
home
 
I love you so
want to be with you so,
but somewhere there in a tank
in Gaza,
so far from you my love –
a murderous bullet hit me
in the very center of
of my heart
where I first fell for you –
and now, I am falling forever
 
I so want to be with you my love,
so want to hug you
my love, my life –
but cannot return home.
 
They have uselessly
spilled my blood, my young life
under Gaza’s blue sky –
and now I shall not,
just cannot
