A conversation Between Santiago and Me
Why havent you come to see me he asks of me

I am afraid i am not the same person i was
I am afraid of losing...who..and what i was a year ago.
I thought
This might be my last card of salvation
It looks promising he said

Lost inside myself..promising...promising?
Against that darkness that eats all hope and only fear for remains
Scraps and tatters on a barren table.

In order to stop the fear, i must become what i fear, I asked,said...cried...I...
I might disappear.

Who told you so
Who told you such?

Your existence will always stay in my heart
No matter who you become
No matter..what you may become..

Inwill remember you

And that will be the proof of your existence
I..will remember you.

If you doubt yourself
Will not lose faith in you,he whispers

Looking out over what a year has wrought
I cried
Do you have such little faith in humanity
Such little faith in yourself...?
That such times and tide would shift.

I...wont forget you
Your name is written across my heart
And I can wait for you to come see me
We are connected after all
Did you not feel my calling? He said smiling


That tug you feel is real
Santiago will wait as he has always waited
10 years
He will call
All you have to do is be brave enough to answer
Look up some clear night and wonder no more
There is a River of Stars to guide you to his doorstep

Buen Camino and hope you enjoyed the tale
