It wasn't so long Ago

I heard devotees call the Names
But I turned away
And headed on to my death
Towards the Palisade
I will be safe, so I thought
Behind this wall of stakes
But from afar I still could hear
The distant call of Names
I lay down not so sure
If ever I would awake
My eyes closed but from far away
I heard the Holy Names
As I would fade in and out
I dreamed I heard them say
"We only want to share the Smile"
"A song is how we Pray"
"So come along you funny fool"
"All to gain, nothing to lose"
"Nothing to lose, all to gain"
I hear them still, the Holy Names
A feeling of deja vue
I remember You
The Boy in Blue
The Days so Fun
The Love so Bright
When all was Young
My legs were strong
I even danced
I even knew
That happiness
I miss you so
Hari, Hari, Hari Bol
Spirit soul and, how I miss you
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna
And, I am so very sorry
Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare
When my true life began
Hare Rama, Hare Ram
When my colors turned to glory
Rama, Rama, Hare, Hare
You invite this corpse so lonely?
Yet you still call me "Devotee"?
Time is a moment easy to miss
What time is it in endless bliss?
When a minute was a million years
Separation yet such happy tears
Can I rise and heed your call?
So much din and confusion
In the pale of my illusions
I almost forgot the easy solution
Hari Bol Spirit Soul
It wasn't so long Ago
