A Little Room


It isn’t clear yet
how much our differences
will weigh
once we arrive
at our tentative destination
or how easy it will be
to continue on
in pursuit
of our original objective—
which was always
a simple wish
to become lighter
and more buoyant
than we already are.
All I know
is that I’ve prepared for you
a lovely little room
inside my heart
that will always be a place
to unload your burdens
if ever you need me
to carry them awhile.







Painting by Vincent van Gogh “Bedroom at Arles” 1888
