Mystic Traveler

I am a child of the lord

grateful for a chance to experience life 

and sometimes accepting direction 

on the way out darkness to the light

for I've been lost for so long in the wilderness 

aching for Gods loving embrace 

that compassionate forgiveness that understands how far in the world we can roam 

to try seek the perfect life

which is never as good as We hoped 


I see this ever reaching upward

to the infinite cosmic stairway home

met in the cross of the vertical dream

and the material horizon of the world we live in

and our lives are just a staging place 

of this passion play in space and time 

a field of these strange dreams

given to us to try to find out why

and we are all Gods children 

these Spirits living here in form

ever seeking and sometimes finding

the reasons why we were born 

so I go within and talk to God 

and light a candle and pray

to live with a little more understanding 

and try to love a little more each day 

and the Blessed Mother stands by

with that smile upon her face

and I wave at her sometimes 

and thank God for another chance today
