I’m desperate and wanting.
Waiting and thinking.
Dipping and fetching.
Hungry and thirsting.
Yet, it’s not my first time.
I’ve gone full circle.
And I’m still searching.

Man:
Woman, you are thirsty!
Your are wilted and dry inside.

Woman:
You need not say it.
For I can feel it and you can see it.
I have been here, waiting for you to give me water that I may not thirst again.

Man:
Not only do I see it, but I feel it, too.
But we have been here before.
Then, I gave you all you would ever need.

Woman:
I must have poured it on the floor.
It must have dried up or
It must have been taken from me.
Whichever it might be,
I have lived in misery, since then!

Man:
I was there, as I am here.
But once it was given to you,
It cannot be taken from you-
Unless you give it away.

Woman:
I have it?

Man:
You never lost it.
Behold, your cup is full.
Your heart is glad.
You eyes can see.
You have been set free.
