I walk the night,
my head hanging down.
I'm not saddened,
just watching my step,
avoiding the puddles,
small watering holes,
where darkness is rich
much like the air,
laden with hope,
for the here and now,
as I, alone,
trod this path
towards a destination,
I do not know,
spare me the talk.
Spare me, my Soul
and I will in turn,
let myself go.

Did you ever
walk a train track,
where you took
small, choppy steps
on the creosote ties?

I did. Still remember the feeling. Hadn't thought about it for a long time until now

Me also. I tried to vary the steps with a long one then short. We would walk the tracks to hunting or fishing spots. Both grandparents retired from the NorthernPacific, with grandma being a station manager. She really could make the telegraph sing when she was sending messages.

Long will I wander,
Long will I run,
until I arrive at
my first home.
Home in the Valley,
far from the sea,
where I still hear
voices calling for me.
Hide in the shadows,
if you choose not to run.
Lie in the vast meadow,
warmed by the Sun.
Stay there forever
until your journey is done.

A hole in my heart,
needs mending today,
as we begin the process
of moving you away.

I’m sorry for your pain. Prayers and good wishes that the transition and settling in goes as well as possible…
