SHE RETURNS

SHE RETURNS

After so many years
She is returning

We have held the gates
So long

Bleeding
Wounded

When she returns
Seeking her lover

He must go to meet her
Be healed

And held
And loved

Outside the gates
She has waited

Within
He has waited too

To bring the children
Home

I sat at her feet
And heard stories

That explained
The moon and the stars
