Litany – Written Wednesday 19th May 1999 (Aged 24)


could you be close tonight
just be close, my guardian angel
be close, you portal of light
my guiding sprite
my unseen watcher
my map in those astral dreams
a former human being
now in your –
most beautiful and purest form
be close tonight
be right here by my side
be there tomorrow
just like the everlasting light –
of my inner beliefs
i am not ashamed
i am touching spirits in my mind
they call out my true name
into the world we bind
be close tonight
you know who you are
your name i need not reveal
for you know, you know how i feel
in your, oh so surreal way
you make everything seem so real
