Y... Calling


A calling can be so strong
It makes us move away
A calling can be so strong

We move away for long
From our loved ones
We move away for long

We miss our loved ones
But our calling is so strong
We miss our loved ones

Our calling can be strong
Following our calling can hurt
But it can be oh so strong.

Following our calling can hurt
But isn't it our soul's desire?
It may be worth the hurt

    A calling can really be hard... it can soak you in tears.. its can bring in fears... it can bring back the passion.. it can do wonders... A very nice subject. (Report) Reply

    How very profound. How very grand that you see it and point it out....we do have to follow when we are called, or...we fail our own destiny...blessings (Report) Reply

    Aufie, this is inspirational. So many people I believe are only half of what they could be if they would follow their hearts rather than what is expected of them. (Report) Reply

    In just for a call
    we heal the miss
    and we fall from tall
    when the one is calling closer
    awake soul's desire or burn in fire
    It may be worth the hurt
    or sweetest bleed recalled
    And that's why a calling can be so strong
    when the loved ones move away for long

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
