enlighten the way

i did finally stand still

he did at that time speak slowly to me

i could not hear,

in feeling we have lost

those who have not yet said goodbye but soon to say farewell to friends --

you still remind me that i miss you,

i still ask, how do you marvel in space

you told me you were trying

that i was getting closer,

in failing to see i have left you behind

i am here now,

will you all know one day

you are always with me?

~ when in still seeing the woman who holds on this earth but now flying
