“Talisman/Keepsake” – Muntinlupa, 10 August 2015

i cannot

follow

where you

will go

(for now);

and so:

into your

keeping

i give

this charm.

 

small thing,

trumpery trinket

in your

hand;

but let

it be

a help

to you

on your

journey.

 

keepsake;

guardian

to attract

good fortune

and dispel

bad karma;

to guide

you on

bright paths

and keep

you off

dark ones.

 

a tiny

piece

of work

indeed,

but given

in kindness,

in friendship,

in peace,

in joy,

in love;

in remembrance

of golden

hours,

of nights

filled with

song,

of conversations

going

nowhere

somewhere

anywhere

everywhere.

 

keep this

token

with you

with my

prayers

for safety

and wisdom

and fondness

wheresoever

you may

roam.
