Person reviews life.

~Looking Back~ 

Looking back after the voyage, 

I cannot see my name 

written on the waves. 

My mirror no longer gives back my reflection. 

I dwindle to a grain of sand. 


Perhaps I should have done things differently, 

for there are no 

moments that I want to go back to. 

But I doubt that anything could change. 


We are cast here in a momentís passion, 

without reason; and, in so many moments, 

spend our lives trying to gather a 

multitude of questions into a single answer. 

But we may be as firmly ordained 

as a statue in its concrete base. 


When I close my eyes 

the universe may cease to exist; 

but if it does not, 

then it was I who was the illusion 

and you the reality.
