Wolf’s Call Coming

Love and life are becoming increasingly clearer in my mind as part of one and the same.  Without love there is no life, without life there is no love.  And what of this to a man who has been told he is dying? I would say in a given limited time, one needs to choose wisely and live and love well.

Wolf's Call Coming
by Michael Romani

The wolf's call is coming
I can feel it closing in
The circle beats its drumming
For all the ghosts passing this way again

It's the way of every military man
To go out fighting, the very best he can
Pushing on and shoving against to persevere
This is a time for courage, no wavering in fear

She whispers there are twenty seven reasons to love
I smile in wondering what she's thinking of
Searching into her eyes, I see my twenty eighth
And hold fast to this with all of my faith

There in the spectra of sight and sound
I marvel at this mystery that I have found
And how the pleasure of her voice offers sanctuary
To a man such as me too often use to the incendiary

The time of the wolf is coming and calling
Despite this, I find myself so totally falling
And I know that even if these are my last days
I want to spend them reflecting back her gaze
