I was falling into the abyss when your voice I heard

And my soul you caught by reminding me that I’m not alone.

Oh, to be loved as the creator intended each to be.

And that none should fall by the way as a song unsung.

Never missed nor sometimes thought of

But remembered

And that memory acted upon.

What a feat to undertake;

To reach out into the darkness,

To raise one’s soul out of the time line

And glare into the universe that is all encompassing

To glimpse a shooting star,

Which was and is my soul.

And with determined intent you pressed that electronic trigger

And snared me with a tagline

Anchoring me to your loving concern

You redirected my trajectory

By reminding me of the whole of which I am a part

And as a shining star you’ve become that beacon

That beckons me home.


The whole of which I am a part

And to know that when I am not

I will be missed.

  1. Brilliant. I especially like the lines: “Oh, to be loved as the creator intended each to be./ And that none should fall by the way as a song unsung.” The first bit reminds me of Mumford & Sons: “Be more like the man you were made to be.” (‘Sigh No More’) You can read my review of this song with its biblical significance here: http://calminthechaotic.wordpress.com/2011/06/27/mumford-sons-review-to-follow/
