Trace a silent line of beating wings,
Beyond an edge of this road ahead.
There I will stand before a grass sea,
Waiting to take you gently by a hand.
But only when the lines of time,
Have traced your face with worn care.
Let our hair be as silver-gray as a winter sky,
And our bodies as tired as snow weathered hills.
I will wait upon a last whispered breath,
To find you held tight in my arms again.
Surpassing each end of every road,
To a place where tears cease to flow.
There with yellowing grasses wave,
Upon the edge of this world will I stand.
