Now I’m out chasing the twilight, trying
to stay a step ahead of the darkness, afraid of my will
giving out before my legs do.
Have faith—we can get there if we work a little
Every day. If we keep the end in mind.
I have to squint sometimes, to see the things
You see—I find it hard to see as clearly as you,
but I have faith in your vision of our place.
It’s not so far off we can’t get there. It’s just
past those trees on the far bank, with the light
settling in behind them.
