It is Sunset
Behold Sunset and the bluff while
Sister Moon serenely rises.
Great Spirit deftly wields his paints
Changing Mother’s guises.
Do you hear his voice in the wind
Calling out your name?
Do you hear the pounding drum
Keeping the beat again?
Can you feel his gentle touch
Bringing down the night?
Do you see the sparkling stars
Gifting soft their light?
Follow now the good Red Road
Calling ever on his Name.
At the end you’ll find the Star Path
Leading to your place he’s lain.
Fear not ever the howling storm
Whipping and driving on.
Your eyes might not ever see Him,
But Great Spirit is not gone.
Walk straight and enjoy the beauty
Surrounding every blessed day.
You must linger here a while yet
But in my heart you stay.
Fear not the unseen paths I must go.
I have only gone to His home
Among the stars and the winds.
Just listen in your bones.
I must rest in the coming night
Where I will wait for you.
In some far distant warming sunrise
We will walk in the dew.
May you always walk in beauty
Whether stormy or calm.
Hear in your heart the call of Eagle
Let that Voice be your Balm.
