As I Depart

at the end of the line,
it feels i am only one step away
from the beginning
I don’t feel the coldness of the earth
i feel my mother’s kisses
and the immensity of my first friend
I feel the safety of my father’s lap
and the joy my first word brought
I don’t feel unhuman
I feel the souls of all I loved
loving me back all at once”
