When I Leave


When I leave

sell all my things.

take whatever you want

or give them away

to those in need.


when I leave,

tell my job that I

found my true calling.

and punching a clock

will never quench

what I thirst for.


when it’s time

for me to be on my way,

may all my family know,

that even if I can’t be there,

I am even more closer than

I am far away.


When I have come to the end

of this long goodbye,

toss my body into the fire.

Let the river drown the ashes

of this cumbrous costume

until my reality

rises up in relief.


When this cosmic expression

is but a kiss in the wind,

and it appears that I have left

this world.

You will find me in all

the many that I love

for in that Love is

the only space

that is real.
