When Will I Begin Again

We all falter. This is a prayer to be brought back into service, when the way is lost and the light is dim.

When Will I Begin Again

When will I begin again
To see it all as it’s always been
To open wide to everything,
To open my dry mouth and sing

Oh this life is heavy, Lord
By the pen or by the sword
I’ve hid my head underneath my wing
And closed my heart to everything

Now nothing burns and nothing breaks
But I pray the gods my soul to take
And throw it back into the fray
And illuminate

Someday we’ll begin again
To hold it all with love, my friend
To open wide to everything,
To open our dry mouths and sing
