SOME FILL WITH EACH GOOD RAIN

 

There are different wells within your heart.

Some fill with each good rain,

Others are far too deep for that.

 

In one well

You have just a few precious drops of water,

That “love” is literally something of yourself,

It can grow as slow as a diamond

If it is lost.

 

Your love

Should never be offered to the mouth of a

Stranger,

 

Only to someone

Who has the valor and daring

To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife

 

Then weave them in to a blanket

To protect you.

 

There are different wells within us.

Some fill with each good rain.

 

Others are far, far too deep

For that.

 

From The Gift, translations by Daniel Ladinsky, p. 76
