so raise the lantern high


an odd and somewhat mystical gate opened 

and doctors and nurses came to me at last 

with torches and lanterns 

(i think of them as trail scouts)

they will light the way now for me and my cane 

to the final path 

it is alright friend 

i don’t mind that there is only one path left to me 

you see the choice is not between 

having one way or many 

the choice is between having one path 

or none at all 

so raise the lantern high 

dear doctor 

dear nurse 

for wherever this trail leads 

i must walk it 

and i am very much ready 

to begin
