Solitude is never yours alone.
In your heart there's always company.
Xeroxes are not the same as mirrors
That render depths beyond what you can see.
Your soul is never solely on its own.

There is a sense in which you are on loan.
Here is not just here, nor can you be
Rushing merely, borne along by rivers,
Ending as time meets eternity.
Each moment is eternal, still as stone.
