Fidelity

Standard

Do not forsake me
Oh my darkling Soul
When turned to see
The black of shadows
Swallow into nights
The small and flickering
Light of hope
To hold and have
Such need of you
Explaining
All my meaning
Keeping truth complete
And never leaning
To a bias of an other
Dream my dreams
Of being full
And carry me across
The thresholds of such danger
In the doubting of my steps
And never erasing me
In longing ever
To be other
Than I am
My love you are
My thread which hold
Together my beginning
To my end
I am the one
Who has to learn
To keep the line in hands
Through turning
Of the day right through
The loss of light
In deepest night
Of blackest lack
Of bearing seeking
Sighting of fidelity to you!

Lodestar Lacking

Standard

Lodestar lacking
Black the sea
Of universal nights we sail
The deep and very dark alone
Haphazard in these winds
Of winsome lose some
And the trips that trap in
Eddies rings of habits
We are lost within
The spin of repetitious
Ring of hopes no way
To stop the tide of flowing
Need is seeded
For relief too deep
And steeped in longing
Plea for Mercy!
Mercy Please!
Oh please!
Be kind to me
