Come Away, Come Away

“Over the Wall” – Richard Saunders, 2015

come away

come away

and walk

the world

with me;


the cares

the pains

the woes

of this



behind us

and seek

and find

the magic

the hope

the peace


prayed for.


take my


take my


hand me


for safekeeping

and neither

of us

will falter:

let’s go.
