You’re slipping slowly backwards
Looking to the dawn
To the time or to the moment
When nothing was forlorn

You fill your mind with images
Of joy beyond belief,
Of people in a state of ecstasy
With nothing more to grieve

Around them and above them
Life and laughter flow
More than they imagine
Truly now they “know”

The moment of beginnings
When the circle is complete
Will be the way all things will end
When the light transcends the heat

Of course you have the answer
Before the questions asked
Nothing can be hidden
From the one without a mask

So open up your heart
Embrace your spirit’s cry
For your life can be forever
Don’t let heaven pass you by
