Do you hear unspoken thought,
Do you fly now, with the birds,
As the rest of us stay caught between our futile deeds and words?
In the endless dome of sky
Make a territory of dreams
While we can only cry for how finite a lifetime seems
Are you floating down the styx
Like Egyptian cats of old?
Do you dine with Tut and Ramesis in palaces of gold?
In the finite span of life
And the cycles of the moon
We can only make short plans for anything that ends too soon
A final resting place
Is no prison for a soul
We are elemental as the air that keeps our planet whole
In your light and playful way
You will always follow me
Outside in the garden where the angels set you free.
