Love After Love– Unknown Author
The time will come when with elation
you’ll greet yourself arriving at your own door
in your own mirror.
And each will smile at the others welcome and say “Sit here, eat!”
You’ll love again the stranger who was yourself
Give wine, Give bread
Give back your heart to yourself
to the stranger who has loved you all your life
Who you have ignored for another
who knows you by heart–
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror
Sit, Feast– on your life!
