Traveler’s Lament

wishing
&
hoping
to turn back
the wheels of time….

or
at least….
get a do over?

i don’t know how,

but, yes,
i certainly know why.

but why
must we both lose that
which lifts
us
up?

why?

i gave what i could,
but
i could give more.
Damn it,
let me
give you more.

i know an easier road
will take me away
from you.

i know an emptier path
will keep me from knowing
you.

i know
the path i seek
is the path
leading
directly
to you.

a path of loving kindness
a path of more, not less
a path of tenderness
a path of togetherness

i can travel the world ten times over
and never find
the wonders i uncovered
right here
with you.

you.
