This is a poem that was written for a dear friend of mine, who has just  left to go to a faraway place.

 

I send you away
With a tear and a kiss
And a prayer for your safe return

With a little house
To remind you
Of the place you have
Here with me

A place of warmth
Of love
Of growing in the light

Your return is marked by your prayer
Of sincerity

Prayer can lift you unawares
Repairing the miles
Between us
Replacing the spiritual desert
With green leaves and palms
