669. A short note

I went to visit my original Home.
Alas, my parents were not there.
I missed their presence badly.

I was told by the sun,
The moon and the stars
That my parents left their Home
To visit my home on earth.

I came back home hurriedly
Only to find a short note:
“Son, your father, God,
And your mother, Goddess,
Need you here on earth
And nowhere else.”
