One more time

Body and mind

Old, worn, weaker they have become

I am not as good as I once was

Yet just once more

I can be as good as I ever was or had ever been

Just one more time

Wanderer of the wind

“Oh bother, I’ve become stuck on a branch”, said the wanderer of the wind

“Shall I help you down?”, asked the monk of the earth

“It’s okay, the wind will take me eventually, thank you for offering.”, said the wanderer of the wind, so days past and there he stayed

“Shall I help you down?”, asked the warrior of the fire

“Worry not about me, the wind will take me when it’s ready. Thank you for offering.”, said the wanderer of the wind, there he stayed until the sabbath day

“Shall I help you down?”, asked the healer of the water

“Thank you but I am fine, the wind will free me when it is my time.”, said the wanderer of the wind, it was there he stayed forever more for the wind could not take him any further because he was stuck on a branch.

“Shall I help you down?”, asked the voice of the void

“I accept your offer.”, said the wanderer of the wind

“Then close your eyes my child and return to me.” said the voice of the void

“Okay.”, and that was the last thing ever said by the wanderer of the wind
