pull!

If you come as softly As wind within the trees You may hear what I hear See what sorrow sees. If you come as lightly As threading dew I will take you gladly Nor ask more of you. You may sit beside me Silent as a breath Only those who stay dead Shall remember death. And if you come I will be silent Nor speak harsh words to you. I will not ask you why, now. Or how, or what you do. We shall sit here, softly Beneath two different years And the rich earth between us Shall drink our tears.
-Audre Lorde

If you come as softly
 
As wind within the trees
 
You may hear what I hear
 
See what sorrow sees.
 
If you come as lightly
 
As threading dew
 
I will take you gladly
 
Nor ask more of you.
 
You may sit beside me
 
Silent as a breath
 
Only those who stay dead
 
Shall remember death.
 
And if you come I will be silent
 
Nor speak harsh words to you.
 
I will not ask you why, now.
 
Or how, or what you do.
 
We shall sit here, softly
 
Beneath two different years
 
And the rich earth between us
 
Shall drink our tears.

-Audre Lorde
