Series of Senryu for my Son

Your life started here.
Under my heart you began,
your time one with mine.

Four thousand miles now,
an ocean lies between us.
Your time grows longer.

I feel my own end
creeping closer, visible
at the end of time.

I trust you and yours
to keep time and love always
flying to new dawns.

Universes expand
with fresh heartbeats forever
exactly this way.
