Rustic Riders: Music

May Your Journey Be Swift

(Rustic Riders)

This is a song about dying. My neighbor, good friend, mentor and “grandmother” to our children was dying of brain cancer. With the help of hospice and her family she died at home. This was my prayer for her, our mother Emmy and for all of us.
May Your Journey Be Swift

May your journey be swift; may your travels be light
May you find peace in the long dark night
May you know grace as you travel from this place
You have run the good race

You have run the good race; fought the good fight
Held the grieving hand; stood for what is right
Soothed the tortured soul, now it’s time to go
Until we meet again

Until we meet again, I’ll remember you
In the morning mist and the evening dew
You’ve been a good friend, tried and true
I’ll remember you


Bridge:

When I look in to your eyes, there’s something in your stare
Are you still here or are you already there?


May your journey be swift; may your travels be light
May you find peace in the long dark night
May you know grace as you travel from this place
Until we meet again
Until we meet again
