what have i done

I have lived in the Devil’s Triangle,

I have loved deeply without return.

I have sat with loneliness surrounded by friends

And have spoken with ancestors alone.


I have sipped wine around a fire.

I have drifted in the sea under a full moon.

I have sat by streams in a silent forest.

I’ve seen a garden sown with love in full bloom.


I have cried from joy and laughter.

And have few times accepted death.

I have looked in the eyes of a creature so kind.

And shed tears as it took its last breath.


When I start to think life is simple, mundane,

I make lists of the things that I’ve done.

To remember that no matter how much this list grows,

There is certainly more yet to come.
