Follow by Bernadette O’Reilly

Walking home from the Miraculous Medal
Held in an inner city church
Holding hands
We pass tall grey buildings
Shadowy people.
Before we reached the tenement we called home
My six year old child’s voice asked
Why does the moon follow?
A year later the moon followed to a housing estate called Finglas
Where we remained for the next forty years
Through rows
Illness
Death’s
Many joys too.
