All things fail but one

All things fail but there is one.
When frailty falls ,  hand falls

Loose by bed, yet there is one
Who is tender knight by night

Who holds frail hand, in a fall
Like leaf falls loose from tree.

He holds tender and ineffable
All things that fall from frailty.

(following Rilke’s beautiful poem Autumn)
