Calling out

Stephen Chinnock

Ah my Fra Sebastiano
I need to talk today
About the long road
To redemption

I so value your knowledge
Of moving through pain
On your knees
On a cold floor

Your austere cell
With prayers and song
Resonates with my soul
Asking fundamental questions

Where is the way home
To a new bright life
When I can offer again
Accomodation and love

How can I stop
The game of self blame
Smile again about my fortune
Count my advantages

You know Fra
You seem to answer my questions
As I write
You are a blessed companion!
