For Now

Turn off the light

lay down your head.
you have come
at last
to your place 
of rest.
As you drift away 
leave your stuff
at the end of 
your bed, 
for it is enough 
now, all is done,
and pain has gone.
So, both glad
and sad, and so 
much more
we wave you off
to a somewhat
distant shore
with stumbling 
hope we strain 
our eyes to see 
some kind of place
we all might be
meeting
once more
