Silent call

(October 21, 2003, Philippines)

it was a silent call
i heard in the wilderness
that called me back
to where civilization resided

i was lost in the thick of bushes
in the darkness of the giant trees looming
i had been two nights in the place forlorn
no hope of rescue with passing dawns

i strayed into the godless place
while my heart weighs
the heavy world surrounding
escape i dared find but lost i was
in the wilderness tonight

but i heard a silent call
a faint hope of light
that my darkness be brightened
and out of the the wilderness i might
be free tonight
