Amen

Those who are here
       are not gone
Those who are gone
       are not here
Here and gone
Gone and here
The rhythms of the Earth
The grief of lifetimes, but
        all is well
        and as it should be
We are destined not to be here
        forever in this form
  We seek ecstatic union with
        All That Is
       Has Ever Been
       Ever Will Be
And we say Amen because
        we know not what else to say.
And so it is
And so it will always be.
Amen.
