sanctuary

after days of worsening symptoms
and aching feet
I sat in the Cathedral
and felt at peace
in the beautiful Cathedral
of Saint-André in Bordeaux
I felt the glow of something
inhabiting my soul
sanctuary sweet sanctuary
a tourist bends his knee
some of this sweet sanctuary
come away with me
sanctuary sweet sanctuary
when it was time to leave
I almost lit a candle
but something halted me
