4 words

We know the words, the 4 words most
important to our journey
our sailing ship
the words that are the difference, the
true difference
between knowing
and hoping
between here
and there
we know the words and wait
to hear them…
from ourselves, from others, from
inside and
outside
in darkness, in
a chilled velvet November New York night,
in a
blast furnace August Miami morning
we know the words;
‘you are not alone’
and they are vital not because “alone” is horrible
unwanted deprived diminished
frightening
but because if we hear
them, if
they land on eardrums waiting;
then
then
then someone
said them
to
us
and knowing that , feeling that;
having that be the friction on skin that warms
the beating of blood
within
that knowledge becomes
a beacon
a shining lighthouse in storms
of hazard and casualty
and by setting
our compass to a distant point
on a hidden
horizon
we will always be able
prepared
capable of going
home
even if home is wherever we are
right now.
