Gabriella Alziari


Who will stand

by your side

when you brave

the final miles

of your life


Who deserves

to partner with

the soldiers in your soul,

to wade unchartered waters

like a warrior forgotten,

letting uncertainty glide

over you

like a passing wave


What army will you take

on your quest

to self-discovery;

where do you

rush to

when the war is over


At night

when all is silent,

who will stay by your side

until the distant sunlight

meets the mountains,

and you fall

to your knees

with forgiveness
