Let Them Come by Bishop Carol Gallagher
Ravens crying overhead
rain like slow tears abound
so many changes to pack away
like a child beginning school again.
There is fear in everything new
there is comfort in old familiar
I ache for comfort and home
and am being flung away again.
Arms open wide the teacher calls
home and comfort await you now
God is there with you little one
fear not, for you are loved.
