What is it that you ask of me
I strain to hear your voice.
The silence sometimes frightens me
Into believing there is no choice.
But to follow however blindly
This path I cannot see
In faith I reach out for guidance
I tell myself time over again
You will not forsake me now
You would not lead me into the dark
To abandon with no way out.
It makes no sense to be challenged so
If change is not required
Yet I will gladly be led by you
If to follow is truly your heart's desire.
Having glimpsed a world beyond the veil
I know not where I belong
The physical realm demands me here
But the call of Nirvana is strong.
Am I to stay or am I to go
This question is not for me
But I ask it of you with the greatest respect
Where is it you would have me be?
Show me the path, point to the trail
I'll accept my fate valiantly
How can I follow when there is no light
What is it that you ask of me?
