From despair I made
Anguished prayers
Received signs
Beyond my dreams
Beyond any wild hope
And they lifted me still
Stinging with tears
So grateful for assurance
That you have made the Bridge
That you are safe and free
And for that last day I am forgiven.
I watched your light burn
So bright it stopped the clock
And sent me feathers
And I saw a shape in cloud
Reclining in the heavens
You remind me how
Strong the bond can be and
For all this I am grateful
I stand alone and watch the West
As moths thump at the window
And weak white sunsets thin the
Leaves as I hold my breath and
Listen as your  dream unfolds
But in the darkness dire red flickers
Shed by Antares sink my heart and
Pitch me back to grieving.
