I do not think I'll come back as me.
I will come back as Soul,
continuing the journey
in another body, another lifetime,
perhaps carrying on
from the level of karma
I worked off here,
to hopefully make the next lifetime
a little smoother.
Perhaps those souls
who touched mine in this life
will find me again,
also in other bodies,
like my wolf-pup found me this lifetime,
looking at me with the gaze of a human,
unable to verbalize the psychic connection
that we both always knew was deeper
than wolf-dog's and human's.
All I ask is that there always be
ocean and old-growth forest,
wherever this soul takes me,
on the other side of death.
And let a big black wolf come to guide me
when I cross over,
as I asked him to do,
at the end of his life,
when he gave his wordless promise.
