Old friend

We have all known fate before.

Closer to it at birth, and then
progressively dimmer in our minds.
That ever expansive time
before we came into existence.

I don’t remember it being bad, so
Why be afraid?

When I must
inevitably return to that
curious place
I will greet it with a smile,
embrace it comfortably…

Dearest old friend-
I have so much to tell you.
