A Doorkeeper

Copyright (c) Victor Darnell Hadnot

If I were a doorkeeper I'd let you in

I'd never change the locks to my heart

I'd never hide my face when I saw you

If I were a doorkeeper you'd be my friend

If I were a doorkeeper there'd be no pain

The shadows which cross the grass in silence

Would never cast their gloom of chalice

If I were a doorkeeper there'd be only rain

If I were a doorkeeper the world is yours

And there would be time for all and no time

For the sorrows of our thoughts of reason

If I were a doorkeeper I'd unburden chores

If I were a doorkeeper as wise as a mouse

There would be saints and angels calling

You to a new and precious elucidation

If I were a doorkeeper in God's holy house
