Soul Journey

I call to you, my brother wolf,
howling in the misty twilight
of the new moon.
Do you hear my soul’s song,
echoing through the trees?
I am here waiting for you;
to join me on this lonesome journey.
Come walk the ancient path with me,
across the sky, past the stars,
To the cave of souls;
where we might take our long rest
with those who have passed before us.
Can you here them calling?
Chanted whispers, of family and friends,
gently weaving their way through
the great celestial bodies,
leading us home.
