The breath that rises in my chest,

The song that sings good morning

In the hollows of my mind,

The heartbeat of the pilgrim

Beating toward a new horizon,

All beckon me to follow

Golden sunsets toward tomorrow,

Not knowing earth’s dimensions

Nor the span of life’s extensions,

Content to trust the calling

Of an unseen strong Companion

Whose voice I hear forthcoming

From the tablelands of Heaven.
