Studio demo
Although I do not hope to turn again
Although I do not hope
Although I do not hope to turn

Wavering between the profit and the loss
In this brief transit where the dreams cross
The dreamcrossed twilight between birth and dying
(Bless me father) though I do not wish to wish these things
From the wide window towards the granite shore
The white sails still fly seaward, seaward flying
Unbroken wings

This is the time of tension between dying and birth
The place of solitude where three dreams cross
Between blue rocks

Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden,
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will

And let my cry come unto Thee.
