Oasis


listen closely
do you hear the rushing of the river?
the pound of drums
in this jungle?
this oasis
is my heart
flowing richly with a river of love
and blooming with life
the drums beat arrhythmically
because my heart is
excited to see you
look!
my heart was dead
but you are the sun
and you let the river flow
and irrigate
and the brown is rapidly turning green
the river in my heart that flows now
brings sweet deliverance
in my heart
because my heart was a desert
barren
from love
but you made it a vivid jungle
you've brought me back
from the brink of death
and transformed a desert
into an oasis
