And when I walked the forest pathways

I breathed easier

Surrounded by those ancient trees

Gigantic ferns filling the space between 

Wisdom, a powerful majesty 

Offering protection, offering healing

When I walked the forest pathways

My whole being was filled

With light, and hope

and a certainty that you were safe

I wept and my heart

Filled with gratitude 

Both for the forest 

and for having walked a path

28 years with you.

RIP Cole/C/Cass/Cassandra
