Seawolf's Haven

~We shall be known by the tracks we leave behind ~



You were born together, 
and together you shall be
for evermore

You shall be together 
when the white wings of death 
scatter your days

Aye, you shall be together  
even in the silent memory
of God

But let there be spaces 
in your togetherness
And let the winds of heaven 
dance between you

Love one another, 
but make not a bond of love

Let it rather be 
a moving sea 
between the shores 
of your souls

Fill each other's cups 
but drink not from one cup

Give one another 
of your bread 
but eat not
from the same loaf

Sing and dance together 
and be joyous, 
but let each one of you
be alone,

Even as the strings
of a lute  are alone 
though they quiver 
with the same music

Give your hearts, 
but not into each other's keeping

For only the hand of Life 
can contain your hearts.

And stand together 
yet not too near together

For the pillars
of the temple 
stand apart,

And the oak tree 
and the cypress tree
grow not  
in each other's shadow

Kahlil Gibran - The Prophet

~We shall be known by the tracks we leave behind ~

~ Man cannot discover new oceans
Until he has courage to lose sight of the shore~
