A bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives roses.
~Chinese Proverb~

All By The Cup She Gave

A nomad wandered into town,
Weary from his trip
Cloaked in dust by foreign grounds
His sandals worn and ripped

Posture bent with chin cast down
No eyes did his gaze meet
Down silent streets no friends were found
Just echos of retreat

A sip of water for his thirst
To quench his burning need
Upon his soul, a bastard curse
That chocked him like the weed

Stranger in this land of dust
Verdant was his home
Bearings lost in sandy gusts
Eons did he roam

Shadowed figure by the well
Bucket filled to brim
Magic moment, desert spell
Her cup she gave to him

Drank his full and choked on breath
Until he could no more
Here by each sip, he cheated death
And left it by her door

In gratitude he took her hand
And placed in it five stones
Each gem the tale of different lands
That spoke in tongues their own

He stayed with her for many nights
As they slept under stars
He took her to his passioned heights
Her love his sweetest bars

He felt renewed, he was reborn
All by the love she gave
For her, he was, the light of dawn
To last beyond their graves

Lady A
