I Saw You

I saw you walking
On the inside of the edge
Mourning each step while letting go
What do you know that I don’t know?

I saw you stalking
The moon last night
Peering through glass like Galileo
Do you see Heaven in the misty glow?

I heard you praying
Without words, psalms or beads
Folding blue into purple into indigo
Surrendering beneath the weeping willow

I saw you smiling
As you came up for air
Planting your feet in the rolling meadow
Unfolding like the Rose of Jericho

Letting Go

The saddest thought I ever had
Is buried deep inside
Below the silent sands of grief
A million oceans wide

I thought that in the days to come
A tidal wave full force
Would set you down right at my feet
A miracle of sorts

Horizons are a distant gamble
Mirages abound
Truth is my confessor
Brutal and profound

Sadness I can swallow
Self-pity entertain
But letting go the dream of you
Will drive me pure insane

Remember Me

I have seen angels hover around the dying
Bestowing graces galore
As the river passes the Elm of False Dreams
Hold fast your coin and your oar
Spit the entrance fee
Into the faces of Grief and Old Age
Float free from the binds of Agony
Before the concrete and the familiar fade –
Remember me, remember me
Stand on the shoreline
With your back against the deep
The lovely, dark, and deep
And remember me, remember me
Let go all promises, true loves and deeds
And when I follow
Remember me
