Eternity Unknown

Did you try to take it with you,

did you really think you could


Did your journey end abruptly,

as you never thought it would


Are those things that you acquired,

much of comfort to you now


Are those dreams left uninspired,

parked on someone else’s cloud


Did you once just say “I’m sorry,”

for those things you didn’t do


Did you weep in fearful moments,

for those things you wished you knew


Was your lack of all contrition,

what’s now written on your stone


Is your map unmarked and barren

—all eternity unknown


(Villanova Pennsylvania: March, 2017)
