The desert sands swirl about me
The realm of cruel Set envelops me
I am lost in the desert
No one hears my anguished cries
As the sands continue to blow
Stinging my squinted eyes
I cry out to You in desperation, O Isis
I cry out to You in anguish, O Isis
I have been betrayed by my friends, my confidants
As Your bother Set betrayed You.
O Isis, give me succor in my time of need!
Lead me to the oasis
For I cannot find it on my own.
I am parched, O Isis.
I am starved, O Isis.
I am lost, O Isis.
You appear to me
Long hair floating about Your shoulders
The staff of life in Your hands
Golden skin glowing, with the light of the Divine.
You are beautiful, unearthly so.
A kind smile plays on Your lips
You reach out for me
And I weep
Fearful that You are a mirage
Or an hallucination
Brought on by hunger and fatigue.
Your arms wrap around me,
Solid as the ground beneath us
Enfolding me in a Mother’s embrace.
Holding me tightly,
You fly, taking me with You.
We leave the desert behind,
And drift among the stars,
In the bosom of Nyx Herself.
I cling to You,
Fearful of falling.
But You will not let me fall,
O Isis, my Mother, my Savior, my Rescuer.
You give me wings
So I may leave this world behind.
We dance together
Among the stars.
