I am not sure which is true
But your voice and your eye
I am sure one must lie

I am

Newborn lungs of lush green pasture
All the pain
Birds of prey; laughter
Little song torrential rain

Of horses mane
Impossibly tamed

As wasps they sting

The music plays
In dripping caves

I'd shut my mouth
Then I could kiss
And watch you breathe
As golden seas

Expensive rush
Tap your watch

A king of rats
A rat of kings
Hear me play
In this way

Home at last
Cut down the mast
For fire

This moonlight beach
No man may reach
This sky of blue
It tastes of you
But sadder

Saying goodbye
To someone you love
Is like reading the final page
Of an amazing book.

As the last chapter ends
You begin to notice
Just how beautiful
And perfect
The plot always was.  

You appreciate the joy
And even the pain
As you read and thumb
Through every page.

Finally understanding
The moral of the story,
You realize you've reached
The end of this journey.

Although the last sentence  
Is the most difficult to read
Another great book awaits
Once you turn the final page.

Eventually you may stumble
Upon yet another great find.
Or maybe you'll return
To the book you left behind.

You may just discover
Once all is said and done
That this particular book  
Was your favorite story
All along.
For Ty & Des ❤️
