I feel a tender breeze caress my cheek
as you gently whisper in my ear,
“Come away with me to deeper places!”
I sense the still coolness in the sacred well
that you’ve been digging within me as decades pass,
where holy, life-giving waters dwell.
You transform my pain into beauty, collecting every tear,
returning them to me as so many wild flowers
swaying in the wind on that verdant hillside
where you wait for me.
