Because I could not stop to say farewell
A veil was cast over me.
It was time to move on
To a place devoid of choppy waters
No storms, no climate change
The entry gate says Immortality.
Yesterday I thought it centuries away
Not allowed time to stop for understanding
I’ll leave this short message for one and all to digest
Having loved being loved
As each leaf falls, that is me returning love endlessly.
