Anything.

Anything

It has been your answer

so many times.

 

It is what you would do

say

sacrifice

trade

give

give up.

 

Any one thing.

 

If any one thing

could bring back

cause

prevent

erase

or change,

 

you would hand it over

willingly

joyfully

 

But you have never found scales

sturdy enough to measure

your need

against your hope or

your regret,

 

and you are still searching

for the powerful hands

that are wide enough

to receive your precious exchange,

compassionate enough

to give it back,

 

divine enough

not to need it.
