Feast On Your Life

Love After Love by Derek Walcott

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.
You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.

  3. I lost your blog for a couple of months there,glad I have found you again, but sad to read of your relationship breakdown.
    I hope you get your groove back soon and find a new little place to furnish in your fabulous style.
    You have friends who love and appreciate you even if we are in another country!
    Cheers Lyn.
