As You Lightly Go

As You Lightly Go
Form: Australian Sonnet
Theme: Death
Subject: Floating leaf

As the autumn leaf that floats on past me
Sacred waters must carry you away
And there are no words left for me to say
For now you must travel forever free
To sail the lingering waters and tide
Passing the shores we knew and distant beach
To that place that is near but out of reach
Your soul now carried by the tears I cried
My love is with you as you lightly go
As Lilith comes to take you by the hand
To lead you home over pebbles and sand
And we will meet again, darling , I know
For that moment, now I can only crave
And cast my eyes to watch the ocean wave
