This Is

and this is a message for you
when you are far away
far away and standing still

to hear the slightest anything
a leaf falls to the pavement ringing
the moon sinking out of sight

and the frost cries,
unable to leave the winter ground.
this is the sound of the breaking

of your heart
by iniquitous courts and of
my standing by to hear the stunning

news that those appointed to judge
have been removed
and the advocate and the Father in Heaven

have arrived on scene.
and this is not a dream.
this is.
