26 Jan

where will you go now?
after the soldiers have retreated,
and the white flag has been lifted,
who will wrap your wounds?
and kiss your scars,
and touch your face,
dig inside your eyes
and stare love back into your heart?
where will you go?

after the rain has blessed our feet
and the clouds have parted,
and the gray turns white, fading blue,
who will dry your hair?
and warm your body,
and listen to your heart stretch,
sing to the stillness
and make music with your fear?

where will you go?
for peace that does not feel
like disaster?
