"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Last night


Last night I had an encounter with Death
it was creeping around souls
and stopped to look in our eyes.

We met many times
I watched it powerless while it robbed the life
of people I held so dear.

Last night I reached out the hand of my soul
and my hand took another hand
so Death had to leave sighing.
