The Bell Tolls For Me

IMG_0612

As you hold my hand

and try to comfort me

with your strong fingers

your soothing spirit

you surround me

with ringing bells

I’m dizzy from the climb

I can barely stand up

I want to lie in green grass

float in your heavenly clouds

singing about beauty and eternity

nothing left to do, nowhere to go

the struggle, the ascension is over

my entire life now into the books

I finally know the way

my path is clear and certain

out of the winding maze

to a tiny opening

where the light shines through

to a place only known

as peace.
