The journey home

Over the past year, I have had a number of opportunity’s to learn about the process of going home,  about the great sense of loss, grief, and pain surrounding the leaving of a loved one.  I have also learned that there is beauty, grace, joy, love, wisdom, and incredible insight that can be gained and experienced through this process.  

I received this poem while in deep thought about how to help a loved one work through the recent transition/journey home of someone near and dear to them.  

Journeys end

       Another begins

Wither the wind blows

        A soul knows

The way to travel on

        Never ending 

In all ways bending

         Growing, following

It’s knowing 

          Awake we become

And then by the drums

          We move on

Never leaving


           -D Bilo
