Poem of Healing
By Jonathan Berman

Poem of Healing
(For Nandini Basu

I wish you love, I wish you healing
I wish you strength for every feeling

To hold you close and caress your tears
Until your darkness disappears

To grow a tree of endless light
Everything you wish to see tonight

We are merely windows, prisms to one another
Silent reflections born from one heart
That longed to beat together

We are merely actors, One yet unlike the other
A softening shadow of a restless dream
Like echoes on the water

You brought me friendship, and I wrote you a song
Each the missing piece that had been there
all along.
