Mother,
I have gone to find the beach.
I have gone to find the seagulls,
the salt, and the sand.

I have gone to find the faces that are mine,
the ones that say hello
on the edge of the water at night

I have gone to find a kiss that waits behind the old house on the lane between Nowhere and Someday.

I have gone to see the seals
as they crawl from the ocean to the
sand, finding their beginning and their
end on this
rocky shore.

I have gone to spread the ashes of
yesterday
onto the paths I will
follow tomorrow.

I have gone to find me.
Don't worry.
I'll be back soon.

Love,
Your daughter
