Salve for Another

I walk, totter, fall and stumble,

Is this it? The last fall to make me humble?

The sun stares and laughs at my sweat now dried

No tears for me at sunset though still I cried.


A lover left wandering in the desert dark,

No light, no hope to reignite love’s spark.

Until there came the cool twilight,

Called me asleep and then that night...


I slept as all was stripped away,

Fear and faith, hope and jealousy,

I dreamt that through my desert journey,

Despite my burden I carried water for another.


I woke that dawn in renewed wonder,

Refreshed now I am salve for another.
