Tell me a story

About when you were younger

One from the old days

The time you came here

From across the Pacific

The isle of Saint George

How you learned English

Taught Portuguese in return

To an Italian

I miss our long talks

I think of them everyday

I’d love one more tale

Thank you for sharing

Your life when you settled here

All those years ago

One thing I regret

I was away when you died

We missed our good-bye
