NO TIES ON EARTH TO BIND HER

No ties on earth to bind her,

This spirit freely soars,

Spanning mighty mountains,

Skimming distant shores

Amongst the stars in heaven,

Beyond the reach of man,

This spirit wakes in wonder,

And cries aloud, “I can

 

And seeing those who loved her,

Still bound by early ties,

She hears their sounds of mourning,

And feels their sorrowfull cries,

Yet from that timeless, distant place,

Beyond the reach of man,

Her spirit wakes in wonder,

And calls to home, “I am!”

 

Sandra Lee Smith

 

Written for Mindi, daughter of my friends Mary Jaynne & Steve, who passed away unexpectedly in 1984.
