(dedicated to Grzegorz Ciechowski)

(by jan castor)

Leaving is only a transition.

Time knows all directions, 
But we only discern its forward motion.

All is ever-changing interwoven in space 
that is multidimensional and multifold.

When somebody dies,
There is no need for concern
And no need for grievance.

Celebrate death as you celebrate birth.
They are both alike, you know.

But if you choose otherwise, 
Light a candle
And watch their shadows dancing.

Soon, they may speak of new travels and sojourns 
so you could believe in your own greatness.
