Derek Walcott
Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other's welcome,

and say, sit here. Eat.

Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.”
