When

When there is no answer
to the question asked
Do we ask the question anyway

When an alternate path
never rises before us
How do we know where to go

When clouds obscure the sun
blocking its healing rays
Will we shield our fragile eyes

When the rain doesn’t fall
upon the parched Earth
Shall we plant our gardens faithfully

When our coffers grow bare
leaving only one can to fare
Should we share the last one

When unparalleled love
knocks on our locked door
Dare we open our wounded heart
