The Street Part 2 – The savior

Posted: December 12, 2012 in Poetry



Collapsed on the street

Snow piled high on me

Tears strolling down my cheek

I don’t bother to wipe them

Knowing I am alone

I sit and wait for death to finally catch up

No longer caring

I hear it coming and look up to face it

But death is not what stares back at me


It is you,

You kneel beside me

Brush off the snow

I look into your eyes

I see no hate, only love

I wonder why you are here

On this side of the street

The wrong side

You don’t say anything,

You just smile


Your smile breaks the ice caging my heart

I feel safe,

Like you wouldn’t hurt me

You raise me to my feet

Take my hand in yours

You lead me away from my pole

We walk down the street for a while

Unsure of who you are or why you helped me


We kept walking; you pulled me closer to you

You wrap an arm around my waist

And place your head on my shoulder

I have never felt love before

But I know this must be it


We keep walking

Night is turning to day

I know now that you were sent to me

Delivered to me

To be my savior

I look in your eyes and see that same sparkle

As when you first picked me up

I love you more than anything

I will never leave your side

For you are my savior

So I walk beside you

Down the wrong side of the street

Happy, at last

  1. hope. the light finally remembered. euphoric peace in acceptance. well done, sweetness. X
