Journeyman

travel not far from my side

alone you will never be,

a dream connects

heart will talk,

deep valleys will not contain

mists draw across

by fingertip i will find,

life a container

a shell that holds

essence and essential you,

written on memory

indelible unsmudged

now slipped

will not escape my grasp

i feel you

as on new travels

across tides

that will wash my cheeks,

will see you

as a new shadow at my side

never forgotten

for my father Ivan Hare son of Wilfred Hare and Nellie Cubbin a fantastic father and friend loved and missed

  4. Chris, I hate that you have lost your parent, friend, mentor, and soul’s companion. No words can fill that void or fill it up – but you must continue to try as they are letters to his soul, and a respite for your own. Sending my condolences and prayers for peace.
