Poem: Ode to Farewell

Through the wind I heared a sigh

And as snowflakes covered my fallen brother

I said my last goodbye

The night came

So endeth the day

And I was to go away

Over the hills

Over the sea

To the lands that I have never seen

The lands that connect to the sea

Under the cloud

Without the stars

No snow in the winter

No flowers in the spring

Alone I came

But back I will be with lots of friends

And where the road will take me

I won’t tell

Because when the day comes

To bid you farewell

I will tell

I will tell to everyone around me

And if I see them again, faith will tell me

Where the road takes me

I came all this way

And when the day comes to bid everyone farewell

I will tell them

About the places I have been

About the sorrows I have seen

And I won’t forget

Nor will I regret

The people that went on this road with me

And with this night ending

So ends my day

Alongside the devil in hell

With the angels in heaven

Through the silver streams

And big seas

Over hills

And over mountains

Through forests

And deserts

I couldn’t know

And I wouldn’t want to know

Where the road took me

And to whom I bid ferewell
