A Goodbye Letter: Endings

An unanswerable question asked,
A box not yet opened to the world of men,
The Boy, a story told but still hidden
The man shrouded behind a wall of guilt and longing.

A Box opened, a light on a dark space
The boy seen hidden in the man
A past denying a future
A past controlling the present

A story told, and trust given
Difficult questions, painful answers
Listening, probing, questioning.
But with care, with concern and a goal

To walk, for a time, with another soul
Leading, sometimes following,
But always accompanying
Then to part, but forever a part of that journey.

A path taken, A “Now” created
No turning back, or lingering here
A ghost of a future, brought into being
Now paths diverge as the wheel turns.
