The Calling


The heron on the lake

Did not stir and make you wake

But by my side I saw you stand

And point to it with your hand

We talked, I listened, I saw you glance

At butterflies flying in a dance

And all at once I saw each wing

Carry you free from suffering

But your smile and love always remain

Tinged with sadness and with pain

You walk with me in thought and deed

Bless each step until I succeed

And then one day when life is done

Your wings will carry me to the sun

Together we as one shall be

And all of life we’ll know and see

That world beyond the one we know

Where love stands timeless

In Heaven’s glow
