Song of Praise

from Paper Boats by Anna Vogelzang



there are moments that end
& moments that begin
there are times we say goodbye or kiss goodnight
and each one is part of the giant book we are writing
we are all co-creating this great life

& who knows what is planned
but the ground that we are standing on
will bind us all together in the end

& one trick for this walk
is to keep one suitcase packed
so that you can jump up & say 'it's me'
when you hear that voice calling
in the night through your dreamings
and wake up to follow, blind & faithfully

but whichever way you turn
there is love the carves a way for you
and love you freely gave, it will return

let’s grab our friends
& launch our ships
to the edge of the sea
and scream out overboard
& each roaring wave
will rolling remind us that we’re still in progress

and each move we make
it will be a prayer
and with that power
we raise our voices
& sing together
oh, so brave & heartily

because I know if there's a time
when my voice is hoarse & broken
you will sing out twice as loud, yes
you will carry me to heaven
yes each one of us is a song of praise

I am a song / I am a song / I am a song of praise
