~I Would~

~they are gone to that place~
~bravely going where we all must go~
~no time for a gathering of ends~
~those of us standing the line~
~can only imagine what our world will be without them~
~that wherever they have gone~
~is a better place~
~because they are there~

~I Would~


~if I could be a pillow~
~a safe place~
~to lay me down your grief~
~I would~

~if I could be a basket~
~I would gather all your sorrow~
~cast it out into the seven directions~
~I would~

~if I could be a fountain~
~I would flow with you~
~through the seven waters of your spirit
~I would always be your friend~
~I would ~

WordWulf, this was a soft and beautiful embrace that glides easily down the spirit to share a quiet sound of love. Nicely done!
