When I Lie Asleep

7 Mar

When I lie asleep
and dream-sail the Zzz’s
perchance I’d ponder..
Where would I be
without a you and a me?

Well, I’d be adrift and lost,
without sails
and storm-tossed.
Sinking…
That’s where I’d be
without a you and a me.

Or on a desert isle
baked by the sun
with no water for miles
and miles and miles and miles.
Thirsty….
That’s where I’d be
without a you and a me.

Lost in space,
billion year-old carbon
stardust aloft,
and then just…gone.
That’s where I’d be
without a you and a me.

Together we rise,
together we fall.
Together we thrive,
and sharing OurSelves
through it all
we interweave OurSelves
Together.
Forever.

When I lie asleep
and dream-sail the Zzz’s
perchance I’d ponder..
A you and a me,
and I smile that We Be.
Eternally…si

OK, so I’ve been to Big Bend maybe 25 times, with my friends and with my family; backpacking, car-camping, truck-camping on back-country roads, etc. Way back in the day we’d backpack and hike to some of the most remote and inaccessible parts of the park. I even summited El Pico Cerda (aka The Schott Tower) in the Sierra Del Carmen range in Mexico in January 2001. Beginning in 1994 Laura and I, along with Ryan (then 14 y.o.), Austin (joining us in early 1997), and a large, diverse, and amazing group of friends spent Spring Break and/or Thanksgiving every year for about 15 years. Big Bend has been the stage for many of my life’s most memorable moments and is one of the wildest…
