My Sister Sorrow - Poem by Elna Nel

that my tears would bring
healing to you
on the morning's brow
hanging on fragile
but steely
ropes of hope

and I will cry for you
till your night
is fully soaked
so let me fall down
in your darkness
let me share
your hours of salt
and water your
sister sorrow

for leprous moments
your pain I borrow
float with me
on clear tear streams
let me be the boat
that carries you
to healing hills

my sister you sow
my life in your pain
and therein a new day
for both of us will grow
