the water bearer


your words
are water
each
drop
hitting the spot
with even more intensity
than the one before
filling in
the dry
neglected
cracks
in my heart
restoring life
giving hope
my cup
overflows
my thirsty
soul rejoices
realizing
the value
of my well
and how dry
and untended to
i had let it become
look down at me 
now
see your reflection, the mirror of my soul


Peace ~ Rene
