From Living in Direct Provision: 9 Stories

“It was very painful leaving without you, not knowing if you were safe. Suddenly you were not there. They promised you would join me in two weeks. Two weeks that has turned to years. Your sister saves you a seat on the bus and at the dinner table. She asks when we will be a family again. I don’t have any answer to her question. I hope soon I will hold you in my arms again. I hope soon I can show you how much I love you my boy.”
