WHAT NOW? by Jean Harris ©

The end has arrived……………………………………

The breaking of a bond.

We came bringing the gifts of life to the table;

We shared our lives, our thoughts, our fears;

Together we laughed and we cried;

We were guided with wisdom, warmth and love.

And trod unknown paths of revelation.

Do with it what you will…………………

It won’t be easy, but what rewards?

As new friends we parted with sadness and hope.

We all hold the light gently in our hands,

don’t let it go out.

………………….it is the arrival of the beginning.
