The agonizing sound of goodbyes echoes as we move
Dismantling the hope that once held everything
Another deliverance perhaps unfolds
Another tomorrow always formulates
Until the time that our personal tomorrows end
Can it suffice me to just breathe
And walk a step at a time
Even if I don’t know where I am going?
Perhaps a new greeting I may encounter one day
From someone who also speaks my language
Hope without expectations carries less to let go of
If hope turns to ashes
Remaining with the trust in Oneself
And the knowing that the authentic existence of life
Always exists unaltered within us.
