Only you, ever made time stand still
ripping the veil
from this performance we call life.
There’s a portal between our everyday waking
and the ledge we walk
extended hand for help to cross over
into love’s final embrace.
I can close my eyes
and feel the relief
of existing without trying,
loving without planning,
smiling without effort.
And you’ve bordered this dark space
between spiritual discovery
and physical demise,
bravely taking one step at a time
or no step at all,
until peace slowly flooded your veins
and rendered you calm
against all earthly odds.
I’ll sleep one day too.
