a place where we can make our dreams real

tears washed me from the face of the earth,
took me away,
swept beyond the here and now,
to where you were going.

and i had to let you go,
for you to see the place,
i had to let you leave.

tears engulfed the land
and became the sea,
hot hard salt rivers
covered me, and you , and everything.

tears washed me from the face of the earth.

and i heard you say goodbye
felt you leave,
in the silence i heard you speak to me;

‘i am going now, i am on my way to see,
the place where i know we can make our dreams real’

and i felt you leave,
as as sure i sit here with my hands on my knees,
i felt you breath,
as if readying for sleep,

tears engulfed the universe
the dinosaurs,
the oceans bed
and everything.

‘i am heading out and here i will be free,
i am on my way to see
the place where i will make my dreams real’

a place where we can make our dreams real

Artist's Description

for my dear brother. even now i cannot explain the sense i felt holding his hand as he moved from his life with us here. it is hard to call it beautiful, but in that moment i felt more human, more aware of life than i ever have. and in that moment of real weakness i felt stronger than i believed i ever could.
