Wake Me

WAKE ME

Noah benShea

 

Do not come to tell me of the long sleep ahead

Come instead to wake me

And make me see the moon

 

Do not come to tell me the hour’s growing late

Come instead to shake me

And remind me light is on the lake

 

Do not come to tell me I must be cautious in my ways

Come instead and promise if I live a life that’s bold

What grows will not grow old

 

Do not come to tell me this life’s a slender thread

Come instead to compass me

That there is a road ahead

 

Do not come to tell me the worries I should fear

Come instead to sing to me

Songs of faith I wait to hear

 

Do not come to tell me memories of who is gone

Come instead to tell me

All passes; nothing’s gone

 

Do not come to tell me life is sad

Come instead to laugh with me

And offer oath

That health alone is reason to be glad

 

Do not come to tell me of the long sleep ahead

Come instead to wake me

Come instead to teach me

Come instead so I will know

The here and now is now and here

And those are blessed

Who in your Grace

Make rest

From their fear.
