Question With No Answer

Published in Celebrate! (Spring 2000):

Remember when you asked me,
What I loved the most?
Then I did not know.
I replied: „My life.“
You left irritated.
I thought about it
For a long time.
Now I know the answer.
I love the sun and the moon,
The happiness and the sadness.
I love everything around me.
In short, I love my life even
When it is sometimes difficult.
You are gone, I only wish
I could tell you that
You are my life.
