YOU CAN'T COME WHERE I MUST GO



You can’t come
where I must go
or even walk beside me
because the restorative journey
must be made alone
upon the desert waters
of the deep oceans
from which life comes
and to where it may return.


I know you love me
and fear this journey
this plunge into the deep,
but do not fear
for your sisters
the dolphins
will keep me safe
as I look for the self
most needed to live and function
on dry land
where wealth defines
both soul and self.
