He reached for the light in the window,

you said, and went on his way onwards.

It made you pray, it made you cry,

it made you think onwards.

When it was you turn I felt you

walk through me.

I was sitting by the sea like always,

and there was no emptiness.

You simply walked into the light

onwards where I could still

reach you.

It was your time to reach for the light,

like him that went before you.

Him that you loved,

him that you prayed for.

I cried, of course, but there was no


You didn’t walk away from me,

you walked through me

and the light-tracks you left in me

remained like sparks reminding me

of how much you loved me,

how much you still love me

from somewhere

  3. Yes, you went somewhere for this Trini. The words are heart written from standing in that place ❤️
    Love and light for letting your heart soar free dear lady ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋

  4. This is very beautiful and comforting. It suggests to me to not be afraid of death and to be open to someone I love walking through me and leaving light tracks.
