Spread the love
I never knew you

but as a woman I would have

built you a house of love

with my poor words

a house

where you are safe

until the storm turns

a house

where you can be yourself

until life resumes

I would hang up garlands

and colored balloons

until the storm had set 

Gone … Gone …

the wicked and the hard

Free … free …

From hatred and scorn

A house with beautiful walls

Where you could dream

About what life really is …

Now there are only tears

and anger

Sleep well Ilse …

Now you are safe …
