Wednesday Riff: Salt

You put salt on our lips,
To make us thirsty for you.
You did it, do it, again and again…
Through the friendship of others,
The unexpected reminders,
The warmth of the good times,
And the chill of the not so great.
Never giving up on us.
You put salt on our lips,
To make us thirsty for you.
Because life washes it off,
Distracts us,
Offers other things,
To satisfy the longings,
To quench the crucial thirst.
You put salt on our lips,
To make us thirsty for you.
Never giving up on us.
And will keep on doing it,
In the dark moments,
In the laughter and howling,
In the fear and comfort,
In the days and the nights.
You put salt on our lips,
To make us thirsty for you.

(Inspired by a saying from St Augustine)
