i fare the well goodbye: an ode to my familiar

the goodbye left a mark somewhere deep
something about letters and mail just don't do it justice

they knew their paths were splitting
they knew they were meant to go much sooner
but they held on
refused to move
sitting down together like rebellious five year olds

they clung to one another
with the rooted fear of life unfolding before them
yet all along they knew
it must begin

so onwards my familiar
to those paths
calling us deeper into ourselves

as we get up
i say to both you and i:

keep faith in the process
be true to yourself
look in all directions
and follow the path that appears...
