In the glade of loss

In the glade of loss

You will find me quietly sleeping

By a silent stream that runs

Carrying my weary soul

Deep into the land of shades

And though in my dreams

My soul may fly

There will also be at times

Dark shadows that slowly start to eclipse

The wings of flight

No longer capable of being airborne

Please bear with me

While I travel so very deeply into this place

Even though I know what feelings of helplessness it brings

For I am just floating in the bardo now

Where things are loosening

Deep inside a process

That is impossible to explain with words

So just sit by me quietly if you can

Even as I struggle to breathe the air

And hold my hand

For even if I do not respond

Deep in my soul I will then know

That a silent part of you

Deeply cares and understands.
