In Preparation Part II
Why hello my spiritual friend,
I see you've come once again
Tell me what is wrong,
Why have you waited to return , oh so long
"Hmmm... well how may I say this,
Yes, how, and to be sure there's nothing for you to miss
You see...just as the clouds scant across the sky, so to do, lately,... my thoughts,
And as my life ticks away, so to, disassociation permeates all that I have brought
For I have seen so many things,
I ponder as to what shall this new day bring
I have ventured far and wide,
Oh , my eyes have shed bitter rain, as I have wept and cried
Am I depressed, tired or perhaps something else,
No...it is not that, here feel my pulse
I am simply aware of all that I have seen, done, heard, and participated in,
Oh, my...where shall I begin"
As I approached what it is that I was to understand and accept,
I must make my move,... thus, I must take the next step
In the past, I have often asked and proposed numerous questions,
I trust that these comments and statements are indeed a response, and not think of them as merely suggestions
"You see, the end of another year is upon me, and I must recall that I have done better, or at least well,
I am responsible and accountable for my thoughts and deeds, Oh, I pray you... to me do listen, as unto you, I tell"
What's that you say.... my cat's got your tongue,
"Oh, my...you don't say... you want me as a penitent, and to cover my self in ashes and sit in a pile of dung
Hmmm... that is not appropriate for what I am aware of,
For the Holy Spirit has been sent in the form of a dove"
I could clearly see my friend has a burden,
Oh yes, ...of this I am quite certain
I must take a moment to pray and seek the Lord's advice,
For I am sure ..if I miss... regarding it, it shall not be repeated twice
Oh my spiritual friend,
Have you not worn your armor, which was fashioned for you , while regarding something you defend?
These implements have been forged for you,
That your heart may not be pierced thru.
"I have worn them all the time,
I say... do pour me some more of your wine
I have made great progress in my quest...
I have returned, here and now..., I have come...I have come for some comfort and rest"
For so long my heart has denied
What I have seen, and lo with that I sat and cried"
I apologize...I do not intend,
That is... to you... not to offend
With that, I poured some more wine,
Come... let us sit down together to dine
For lo' although a person may be of royalty, or one with a signet ring
Yet, when a group of humanity comes together, it is "Conversation", that rules, for it is King!
Until our eyes meet again...
