You made her cry at the door,

standing there, where you aren’t supposed to be,

waiting for her, like a song she didn’t expect to hear.


Isn’t it funny how sudden love

heals old,

pours life back into the spirit

a filling well

feeding again,

able to pour for others.


So, you made her cry

and surprised her-

love is a gentleness

between the bones 

of the soul no one can turn down.
