It Happens To Those Who Live Alone

It happens to those who live alone

that they feel sure of visitors

when no one else is there

until the one day

and the one

particular

hour

working in the quiet garden

when they realize

at once

that all along

they have been

an invitation

to everything

and every

kind of trouble

and that life

happens by

to those who

inhabit silence

it happens to those who live alone

-David Whyte
