Calling

I am calling to him
calling to him
calling to him
I am calling his
name lost long ago
lost so long
lost
I am calling him
to rise inside
these men again
inside them
in their flesh
an ancient
memory rising
remembering
his skin
remembering
a gentleness
I am calling
so softly
with such longing
remember
