Every Stranger

Written 1998


every stranger comes from somewhere, and you’ll meet her there,
on a street not too familiar, you will stop and stare
+++ every stranger has a name that you could learn to say with care,

and every stranger comes from somewhere…
so you’ll question your assumptions, every notion dear,
in the light of this unknown love, like a morning prayer
+++ calling you in foreign tongues to follow after if you dare,
and every stranger leads you somewhere…

every loved one is a new world, is a foreign land,
with a language full of new words you don’t understand,
+++ if you knew how far she’d take you, would you ever travel there?
as a pilgrim and a wand’rer, in a new world, undiscovered
+++ among strangers, neighbors, lovers…
