A Clearer Lens

      “I know. You’ve forgotten about love. But, after the sorrow and anger fade, you will remember. You’ll remember the bright—and you’ll see more than the narrow view you see now. You’ll see through a clearer lens.”

excerpt from Chapter 26, The Recognition, The Red Knot

Til The End

The Days of the Guardian are almost over.

I need to know if you’re with me til the end…

Baby baby won’t you come with me

I’ll make you happy

Don’t you think that you wanna see

What’s on the other side

Maybe go out for a ride

Lose our sorrows in the tide

And I, I need to know

If you’re with me ‘til the end

Let’s go take a walk by the sea

Stare out at that old mystery

And wonder how it’s gonna be

It’s like there’re diamonds in your eyes

If I look too close I’m hypnotized

And I will be left scrambling

Take your little hand in mine my dear

Take your little hand in mine

Take your little hand in mine my dear

Take it now take it

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God
When the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one’s laughing at God
When it’s gotten real late and their kid’s not back from the party yet

No one laughs at God
When their airplane starts to uncontrollably shake
No one’s laughing at God
When they see the one they love hand in hand with someone else
And they hope that they’re mistaken

No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
No one’s laughing at God
When there’s a famine or fire or flood

But God could be funny
At a cocktail party when listening to a good God themed joke or
Or when the crazies say He hates us
And they get so red in the head you think they’re ’bout to choke

God could be funny
When told he’ll give you money if you just pray the right way
And when presented like a genie who does magic like Houdini
Or grants wishes like Jiminy Cricket and Santa Claus
God can be so hilarious

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’ve lost all they’ve got and they don’t know what for

No one laughs at God
On the day they realize that the last sight they’ll ever see
Is a pair of hateful eyes
No one’s laughing at God
When they’re saying their goodbyes

No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
No one’s laughing at God
We’re all laughing with God
