Weary Chalice

Gently ease this body down,

And rest so weary each bone.

Wrap skin bare with life’s gray hair,

And veil these clouded eyes.

For I am worn upon life’s shore,

And voices call from beyond the sea.

My soul sings melody low,

And pleads with this world to leave.

Across the stars did we all come,

And now I wish to return.

And drink a chalice of immortality,

While I walk the road most crossed.

Lift back this veil so I may see,

My forever family upon that distant shore.

I am done with long for peace,

Let me drink of the eternal well.

-M.E.
