    Here's a poem i wrote about the American Eskimo i grew up with:


    Quicksand
    I never knew
    How hard it was for you to watch me go
    Step by step
    Day by day
    And wonder if I’d make it
    Time went by and confidence grew
    You know I’d trust my life with you
    Things got hard and you were there
    Wounds were dressed, and contraband shared
    Games were played, sweet words said
    Though you never made a sound
    And I grew up, you grew old
    Adventures became stories told
    Eventually a time comes,
    When receiving just is not enough
    So while you fade, I figure out
    A legacy is not a name,
    A house, a face, a shot at fame
    It’s all those thoughts inside my head
    That you pushed out, and replaced instead
    With all the things that I say now
    The things that mean the most
    And then one night, a little cold,
    The fall sky looked so blue
    And the soft coat wrapped around me
    Reminds me of your warmth
    As the sky fades from azure
    To an inky blue
    And your eyes, they start to close
    And my tears start to fall
    So out loud I start to tell
    The stories we have lived
    The mourning, grief, it’s pushed away
    By the memories I have
    The fear creeps in,
    What will I do? Without you by my side?
    “If you’re lost just think about the lessons every day
    And pass them on, to fur and skin,
    Guest and kin.
    I’ve taught you everything I know,
    I’m old and weak, halfway gone,
    So it’s time for e to go.â€
