I knew in two thousand eleven,
I had exhausted all my dreams...
My boat too old to navigate,
The world's yet untraveled streams.

Reduced now to pedestrian,
Hiking the blue roads of the earth,
I've discovered some humans are liars,
My “aloneness” has given life worth.

I loved the dogs that made me laugh,
The cats who brought me mice...
The nature induced states of awe,
Every sunrise, worth the price.

My mind is now a diary,
Remembering days back when...
Incredible hours on this planet,
I will sadly, never revisit again.

As the final chapters are written,
On my cliff, my inlet on the sea...
These tides floated me towards everyone,
And everyone, away from me.
