A Time Apart

Fly away dear one.

Shed this world

and enter dreams

of tomorrow.


Lift your thoughts

upon the wind,

and let the sun’s rays

carry them, and you

to unknown places.


There is a home

made especially for you

in that celestial land.


We will gather

and wonder.

Our thoughts also drifting,

here among the silent spaces

within ourselves.


As the clock’s rhythmic

ticking calls us back

to remembrance

of our own beating hearts.


We look gratefully

into each other’s eyes

while remembering,

and appreciating all

that you are to us.
