You have served me well for quite a while.
You’ve kept me in check while I thought of taking a step
and asked me 432 times if I was sure I was enough.
Through the challenges you’ve been my loyal filter of what is possible and what dreams need to be left aside.
I thank you, my constant companion, for your careful watch.
I will now let you travel far, go find new vistas, enjoy,
dear one: get some rest for a while!
(on this new moon)
I have some dreams to take care of
and my backpack is too tiny
to carry you with me this time around.
