The Narrowing Path

The narrowing path will guide you
towards the close of day,
and there are no forks or deviations
upon that narrowing way,
just a well-worn path trod by many
down towards the shore
and those who turn to look behind
will find the way obscured.

We’ll walk between high hedgerows
until we find the shore,
and then we must let go, old friend,
dissolve and be no more.
The sea and then no more.
One breath and then no more.
