Not knowing where

These crossroads lead 
As I reach this wayside inn- 
A lonely traveller 

Not knowing who 
Sent you this midnight 
With a dimly-lit candle 
Yet seeing his kindness 
In this infinite emptiness 

Not knowing how 
To express my gratitude 
Moments merging 
Into lengthy silence 

Here, in a rented room 
This sleepless night 
Staring at the walls where 
Shadows play charades 
I realise: 
The distant shores lie 
How far away!
