i have loved living in here
all of these people i met
the places of comfort
the time is coming to leave
and i’m realizing how much i will miss it
I am waiting on a dock to finally set sail. The salty breeze is beckoning. There are still many things I must do before my ship is finally ready, but I can feel the time is coming. Starting in the tips of my fingers and toes, I feel the excitement of a new journey sending sparks into my body. Slowly this electricity is reviving my heavy limbs. Little by little, this current is clearing away the stiff ache from my bones. Then all of sudden, my soul is overwhelmed with this ecstasy. I do not know what it is about this journey that has made me feel so different than any other time in my life, but the sea is calling me. I can finally here it.
As I lie down to finally close my eyes to this day, I am surprised by one more thing: a bright moon. I can see it from my very own window. The dim, white glow invading my room. There it is. There is the moon reminding me that not everything changes. It’s still there- just like it was last winter, just like it was this summer, just like it will be in the spring. I sleep now with this comfort.
