Travelers Welcome

Travelers Welcome

Lips unkissed, and loneliness
the mirror brings urgent news
long hallways in hospitals
flowers cheer the sick and dying
young people
with breeding on their minds
a happy sense of urgency
but birds and trees plan ahead
building bridges to the stars
the quietness of warmth
comes like money in the mail
there are reasons like tangled branches
for us to stay together
ignoring the wind
risking life itself for
love and duty
when a better wind comes along
we’ll know it
and fly like dry leaves
all together
and say goodbye to
