in case i die

i want you to know

there’s nothing we’ve seen

and nowhere we’ve been

that takes us away

forever again

whatever we start,

and whether or not

the journey downstream

breaks us apart,

we always end up

together again

so remember me now

the void is my home

our essence is shared

you’ll not be alone

whenever again

know that dying

brings nothing

that’s not everywhere

and trying is binding

as long as we care

to endeavor again

however, i know

the truth of this now:

we exist everywhere

(as if you weren’t aware)

outshining another

whomsoever again

inside yearning

and churning

and ongoing trends

lies stillness and peace

where open hearts wend

and never but never

but never again

will looping around


forever again
