We have come to journeys end
by Jane Tomlin
In a distant land we will meet again
Through time and space, shadow and light
Think of past battles and the final fight
So rise up on your golden wings and take flight.
The journey was long and you've travelled so far
Only now can you rest and be amongst the stars
Rising up towards the darkness
I will remember your warm caress.
Pass through the final stage to your final destination
Cradle to the grave the purpose of our creation
The adventure began but now it must end
As you take your place as you ascend.
The world of night settles
The shadows fall
You will depart soon
and your next life calls.
It will return you home
I will be left here silent and alone
Your destiny awaits ahead
So lay down your weak and weary head.
Because we have come to Journeys End.
