THE ROAD TO THE NORTH, LEADS HOME.

THE ROAD TO THE NORTH,

            LEADS HOME


A Poem


Where are you, sweet innocent?

Mother said you must come home.

Where is the boy known to be decent?

Mother misses you, Oh! Come home.


Now, to the highway, I go

Searching for young Roland

For mother wants him home

Before she passes to Beulah land.


All you southern and Western traders

If you see a young  lost soul,

It's my brother, Roland

Oh, tell him 'the northern road leads home'


All you distant merchants

Tell Roland not to be aghast

For the footpath to the north

Is the road that leads home.


He must come home

And help in building the falling walls,

He must not stay there anymore,

For mother wants him home.


Tell him his home is in desolation

And now is the time for reconciliation

That we must all come home

And never again leave home.

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
