The Calm

Mirrored your trials
In the dark
In the rank and reconciled.
And tempered, these hands;
See the pose?
See the calm, yes?

But under the guise
The simmer of days
That fold into years
To a quake that faults the heart.
It's a line, but it's a start
Lend your ears, yes

On and on we call for the remnants of grace
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me now?
Sing your siren song
And to call it a gain?
Can you hear me?
Can you tell me how?

Come, gather the costs, put them in place
Hedging the creeping of trials that come when you face the borders of grace.
I can see the gate..!
Combing the strands, I shall not wait,
Take up these hands,
And fling them to their fate!

The ebb leads to the glow
In the embers of grace
Can you hear me?
Can you tell me how?
Sing your siren song
If the embers allow.
Can you hear me?
Can you tell me how?
