Take Care of Each Other

by Renwick Berchild

Take care of each other.
Whether there be Father or Mother,
Take care.

You will collide with each other.
You will inflict wounds and be wounded.

Take care of your time.
You are not quicksilver,
You are not a mountain.

Take time to remember each other.
We may scale mountains, cross oceans, guide rivers,

But we shall never dream together.
In sleep and death we are alone.

While living,
Take care of each other.

Take care
Whether there be nothing beyond this,

Take care to lead one another,
Harbor each other,
Lend hand, warmth, and shade.

Take care of your hearts.

They are more fragile than we care to admit,
Of more value than we can comprehend.
