This Is The Place

This is the place
where my ashes shall enter the ocean
surreptitiously scattered
between ferries and fishmongers.

This is the place
where my end will meet my beginning
from my bridge of eternity
to the infinite waters of immortality.

This is the place,
this humble and noble pier
that bows before every sunrise,
smiles into every sunset,
stands firm in the tides,
strong in the storms,
and knows that one day
it too shall yield,
not because it is weak,
but because it is inevitable.

This is the place
where my ashes 
enter the ocean
and my thoughts return
every day I am alive.
