compass moment

while packing today
I came across this compass
used by my dad during the war

he was an intelligence officer
behind enemy lines

before cell phones
before blackberries
before all our high tech gadgets

this was all he had
to keep from getting lost

I have been saying a lot of goodbyes lately
to some who have been wonderful moral compasses
keeping me from getting lost

I will miss their steady pointing towards truth
their unwavering arrow of love
