The Stranger

There will come a time in your life,

When you will hear the doorbell ring,

You will rise up and trudge to the door,

And see a stranger waiting outside.

You will serve them bread and wine,

You will lay the table with your best china.

You will smile at each other.

You will slowly shred all the love-notes

From the pages of your textbooks,

You will drain out the desperate pleas of help.

And finally,

You will love the stranger that is yourself.
