I wish I may, I wish I might….

this heart has slowly settled
it wants to be at peace
pride and envy, jealousy
it’s willing to release

scriptures read and understood
’tis not a fairytale
their lessons are invaluable
companions without fail

I feel remorse for those who’ve died
without the chance to live
and I still here and need you now
my failings to forgive

my love’s been shown to some that were
impoverished in soul
and I’ve been given in return
their own, when they are whole

the call to judgement tugs at me
with spiritual strings
it mayn’t be long before it sees
my ghost upon its wings

and so I will not rage against
the dying of the light
or think that I am better than
the ones who’ve lost their fight

take me when it is my time
and leave the rest to me
I wish I may, I wish I might
your holy Presence see
