You walk with me

Dear friend, 

I know you have been busy living your life. I know that in your busy living, you find little time to think about all those people who might think fondly of you. Ever so often, when the clutter of living reaches a crescendo, I take a hike into myself. I close my shop and go into my gullies and basements, I move into my dimly lit attics to collect the best of my memories… and gather strength from them. Wherever I go within myself, I find you there. I hear your voice, sometimes a crib, sometimes laughter and at times your favorite holler that used to bring down the house. I see your face, smiling at me through photographs and mirrors. I see you smiling at yourself, and I see you everywhere.

The roads of our lives are winding. It is difficult to figure out all those alternate destinies that each of our turns have in store for us. Remember, of the millions who tread their lonely lives home all over the world, there is one who never treads alone. It is I. I tread my life with you. You walk with me in my silences; you help me fight the noise of everyday living.

Thank You.

Shadows

Dear friend, Ever since you went away
I have seen the shadows lengthen
And the hours move ahead into days And Decades.
I wait for I know The shadows that lengthen with time Shorten with time
And some day when we are together I will leave the shadows
And the lost time behind. More Life in a Multiverse

Never Alone


The arrow of time hurtles forth forcing
All in its wake to stumble along
Running chasing hurrying
Trying to keep pace
With all that is ever changing
Mindlessly evasive
There is no escaping.

I too run along desperate
Holding on to my memories of you ever closer
Holding on to fleeting fragrances
To thunderclap reflections frozen dew.

I close my eyes but sleep won't come
For what if there is a turn ahead
And with me, you don't run!

River Me to the Sea


Spring me from the mountains
Run me down stream
Guide me through the valleys
River me to the sea.

In you is all there is to me
With you I am
All that I will ever be,
Hold me long hold me strong
Storm me through this life
River me to the sea.

If there is another dawn waiting
Sleep with me through the long night
And rise me up from the sea.
