Near Is A Verb

In Canada I learnt that a subject could near me;
a verb;
I could near you,
on a plane moving eastward towards home,
I was nearing you.

I could wake up in the morning and near all the old places I had loved,
I could near the former king's palace that I had grown to fantasize about,
I could near the streets in the sun and be happy about it as if
it was rain and not sun.

Nearing me was the world and
everything inside it.

I was nearing you,
always near,
never too far,
I kept moving
to someone.

Nearer to something old
and yet something new that
I had never before
in my short life,
