In Need of a Stranger


In Need of a Stranger

I need you tonight.
A stranger, yes,
But in your words
I hear, another, who knows
The ambivalence of love and loss
Sorrow and hope, peace in Chaos

Grief has come as an uninvited guest
Unpacking as I ask it to leave.

I need the strength I see in your eyes
I need you to hold me,
If only with your voice.
To tell me it will pass,
That I have not lost who I am.
A lot to ask of a stranger.

Maybe we will not always be strangers.
Maybe we will find laughter and play

But, tonight....
I need you ….. to be ….. a stranger
