She saw the old lighthouse
one rainy August day
and thought of her mother
and me,
with a pen and postcards in her hands
and calm in her heart...
God bless her
I love her
and that she thought of me that day
is enough
I can already breathe
the salt she breathed.

It doesn't matter much
how she loves me back
but that she loves me
as much as she did
her sojourn in Massachussetts.

I cry tonight
because of the joy I feel
in my discovery of her
not too far away back
when she wrote the saddest leave-taking poem
I've ever known.

My friend,
I will be saying good-bye for a while.
I hope to find you still
when I come back.

crystal face I kiss
tongue tastes like sweet cold rain
I fall into pond

I just read that you are leaving, why!?! I hope it is nothing to awful, well, a huge hug for my friend across the continents. I hope everything is well, your writing and your support has been wonderful, and it was great that I was here to see you develop alot more confidence in your English and writing.

Best Wishes on whatever journey you are about to embark on.
