The Old Travelers Eulogy

I’ve seen night skies

Only dreams could fathom;

I’ve wandered along the edges of earth

Because I did not believe in the stories;

I’ve met, and loved many strangers,

Each now gone, but a part of me;

And I’ve lived well, in days rich with laughter,

Wine, and sun;

I’ve loved this life—truly,

For every day was a gift unto me,

Given by someone or by something—

And there is no trick, no deep secret

To this, but then to receive.

But already, my words carry too long;

I am tired and old,

And time lingers too close a reminder—

I must push away now,

Off some unknown shore, to live one last adventure–

The grandest of them all—

My boat awaits, a ferry across the ancient river;

I’ve always wanted to fall asleep

Beneath the ocean spray—

You pen well of enriched soul

You pen well of enriched soul flavors.

Their resonance congeals beautifully beyond the halls of said memories.

...For every day was a gift unto me,

Given by someone or by something—

And there is no trick, no deep secret

To this, but then to receive.



these lines are impactful elegance.

What a pleasure to inherit.

Thank you for sharing some of your journeys.
