Ode and Elegy

In the end, when the distance between stars
becomes short, when the new world opens
before you and a single step will take you
into the next life; the sorrow you may see

in me, will contain a little reluctance,
a little joy, a little impatience, and maybe
a little jealousy and guilt. Certainly guilt,
for wanting to go there too early myself.
