Dad... Poem by Adrian Wait



Where does the light go?
When you turn out the light
Where does the sun go?
When day becomes night?
Where does the breath go?
When someone sighs
Where does the love go?
When someone dies
Where does the tide go?
When the sea withdraws
Where does outside go?
When we are indoors
Where does the day go?
When it folds to yesterday
Where does the time go?
When I am a sleep and away
Where does the wind go?
When it leaves the skies
Where does the heart go?
When someone dies
Where do the tears go?
When someone cries
Where does childhood go?
When we grow up
Where do our words go?
When we're told to shut up
Where do the toys go?
When they cannot stay
Where do the stars go?
When night becomes day
Where does the love go
When loved ones die?
Where is the Love, where?
When the tears that we cry

Fail to heal a broken heart
Where is love when we die?
Love is the answer love the key
That opens the door upon eternity
Love is the moment the soul is free
Like the rain to the river, river to sea
Love's cycle of seasons in moments to be
Captured in Memory, allowed to be free
Crossing the Bar, and over the Sea…
Love is forever, and returns unto me.

Adrian Wait.

For Our Parents,
Brothers John, and Greg
And all Comrades who have Crossed the Bar.
