The man who dwells in the caves

The man who dwells in the caves

In Göreme

Is where I found

The man who dwells in the caves

Unfit for life more than one year at a time

In Göreme

Is where I found

The man who dwells in the caves

Gentle as a summer’s night

Polished like a pearl

Weighted down by his life

In Göreme

Is where I found

The man who dwells in the caves

Golden twinkle in his eyes

Alone with only the company of his cane

He ran to us looking for a moment

In Göreme

Is where I found

The man who lives in the caves

He casts a long shadow

He casts a long shadow

His life unremarkable

Birth, life, all the things in between

The suddeness in which

Piece by piece

It was all taken away

Ripples in the lives

All those who knew him

All those who knew of him

To live as those

Each day was guaranteed

Only for it all to be taken away

Permanently without a warning

In the old light of darkness

Far from home

A man, unremarkable until death
