Forever Shining Moon

I asked the sky to speak of God and I saw a rainbow's hue
I asked the almond tree to speak of God and it began to bloom
I asked the mourning dove to speak of God and it began to coo
I asked a man to speak of God and I became confused

I asked the night to speak of death and there was the moon
I asked the stars to speak of death and they twinkled anew
I asked the darkness to speak of death and it did not speak of you
I asked a man to speak of death and I became confused

So now I ask the arms of God to sing their joy
As you move beyond the rainbow
Into the twinkling light of death's
Forever shining moon
