I have been there and back.......

Source

No my dear I am not bragging at all
but I have lived well
I believe
I have lost ......I have learned
and touched the magic of god
I have climbed the highest mountains
and swam in teal blue sea's
Near drowned in the clear mountain
whitewater
And floated away at ease
I have touched the essential beauty of a woman
and laid bare the fears of a man
I still have an imagination
and can laugh at myself and you
I can hold the most humble of secrets
and grace them away from view
Yes ....I have lived .....and perhaps though the end
may be near
I have found myself in the presense
of you my friend
Lover of child ........passionate of living
and ready for dying too
And yet the life is never quite over
I will remain away from sight
You'll see my likeness in the night
skies
Perhaps in the gentlest of waves as they
pass
before your eye's
As I go there and
then back
