Spirit For Spirit
(or What We Do For EachOther)
All your hurts, I will heal.
I will gather the herbs that strengthen,
I will blend the medicine that cures,
I will smooth on the balm that soothes your being--
And burn incense to ease your spirit's fears.
I will chant over you the words of healing--
the secret words--
the words of yourself--
and opening up my veins,
I will let pulse out into you my strength--
it's beat keeping the rhythm
of the song that I will sing to you--
the song of your soul.
I will stand over you in your weakness--
guard you in your weakness--
fire will shoot from my eyes,
and swords from my mouth,
as I shield you with my self--
from all that threatens--
from all that may do you harm.
I will stand over you until you are strong,
until you are wholly you again,
the healer who healed me,
the warrior who protected me--
when it was I who was in pain and alone.
