if

A moment emerges

A part of the whole

Apart from the whole

A sister, all connected,

Feels sorrow.

If one fades-

A margin narrows

A moment is close-

Is closing in-

The next of kin-

A kin to your Mother-

Akin to each other...

-One follows

A moment emerges

Sustained by grief-

A part of the Whole

Apart from the whole

Quenched by knowing the New.

Move through and emerge

One into two

I can't stop you but

I will record

The promise never to return,

But always giving birth

Always breathing Earth

And fading into you-

Into blue-

For 

 

"Time is the tide

on which we ride

Coming towards us-

Slipping away..."
