There comes a time

you excited

will greet yourself when you arrive

at your own door, in your own mirror,

and each will smile when greeting the other

 

and say, sit down. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.

Give wine. Give bread. Give your heart back

to itself, to the stranger who all your life

 

loves you, but you ignored

for another, who knows you through and through.

Take the love letters from the bookshelf,

 

the photographs, the desperate doodles,

peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit down. Enjoy your life.
