April 13: Farewell (#NaPoWriMo #NaPoWriMo2020 #GloPoWriMo #Poetry)

 

FAREWELL

Didn’t know you well,

and now never will.

In this divergence,

the voyage taken

becomes the loneliest.

You left a map,

with the stars marked

by ancient hands.

Our eyes remain dry.

Aye, raise your rum:

A toast to your future

seeds, blooming wild

in quiet coves elsewhere.
