Final Lullaby

I didn’t go far,

but I went far enough

I could have reached deeper,

though finding so much


I could have seen more,

but my vision remains

I could have hoped longer,

though wishes retain


I could have stood taller,

but my back is still straight

I could have blamed others,

though forgiveness my trait


I could have loved more,

but my heart is still full

Bereft of my yearnings

—eternity lulls


(Dreamsleep: January, 2021)
