The World I See - Poem by Peya Jakob

My eyes are set on a horizon,
To which i travel alone,
The way i was born,
I am awake before the dawn.

I am blessed and able to see,
The end that that is yet to be,
I see you drift from me,
As we sit here happily.

I see the color fade,
At the start i see the end..
In the middle of this hug,
I feel only the letting go.

I cant live in the now,
Life is mine for only a while,
You are walking towards me today,
Yet all i see is the walking away.
