TIME TRAVELER
Peace be upon Thee    Time Traveler
Endless are the shores of your seeking
Painful are the tears of your weeping
Short are the joys of your findings
Heavy the weight of your bindings.
How many lovers, how many friends
How many mothers, how many brothers
Have you been.
How many sisters, how many fathers
How many children, how many foes
Have you been.
How many cultures, how many mores
How many virgins, how many whores
How many warriors, how many peacemakers
How many users and how many takers
Have you been.
How many names, how many faces
How many boundaries and faraway places
How many home sites, how many camps
How many householders and how many tramps
Have you been.
How many roads, how many turns
How many moments, for which you yearned
How much laughter, how many tears
How much joy, how many fears
Have traveled with you
Through these eons of years.
