Ruth - Poem by Fred Babbin

An early poem - I wasn't sure

Do I love Thee?
You are my koan
You are my rest and sword.
And so I bleed
My drops of rest.

You were my life
You are my life
You’ll be my life
You were, you are,
And you will be so,
Forever and forever.
And I’m as well your koan too -.
But do I really touch you?
