To stand alone on the Atlantic shore
And breathe in deep the misty salted air,
To hear again the waves familiar roar,
The spray on ruddy cheeks, the ruffled hair-
But I'll go down to breathe the sea no more.
To sit beneath a mountain ash in June,
The smell of flowing meadows on the breeze,
The corncrake and the cuckoo sing their tune,
The droning hum of busy honey bees-
But summer turns to winter oh so soon!
The crunch of crispy grass beneath my shoe,
My breath turned into fog by winter chill;
It's silent now and signs of life are few,
The leafless barren boughs are deathly still
Awaiting spring to breathe in life anew.
These days my breathing's laboured--I've grown old
And oftentimes I am confined inside
When pollen count is high or weather's cold-
What is best for me others now decide,
But I return within to days of old.
But now a nearer shore is calling me,
The day of His appearing coming fast;
I know the Lord of Glory I'll soon see
When snatched away or when I breathe my last-
Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus! Let it be!
