A true story of adventure, salvation and enduring love
Dedicated to my loving rescuer
(Authored and recited by Richard Lee Orey)
Once in time a teenaged youth not yet a man daringly fled from a life
of neglect and abuse to travel alone with only the sun, the moon and
God as his companions.
In his travels, he wandered into a tiny village on a remote Indian
Reservation, and his life never again would be the same.
Out of the mist of his loneliness and life of singularity, he came
to know the warmth of love of a beautiful village maiden who offered
unselfish dedication and commitment without condition or pretense.
Across space, he perceived her image and found himself riveted and
spellbound with her gentle, unwavering smile and luscious lips
presenting a vision where he thought only Rescue Me.
The youth came to his companion unfeeling and wandering in utter
despair and met comfort and understanding.With soulful eyes, the
maiden gazed upon him and whispered, “I’ve been waiting forever
only for you.”
Trembling in his soul, succumbing to the passions of his heart, the
youth stood spellbound and hopelessly intoxicated.One taste of her
image and he was forever lost in love, even as the maiden
rescued him from spiritual death.
In her rhythm of movement, the fair maiden reigned irresistible, her
swaying hips playing like a magnet on his soul.As he listened to her
warm, lilting laughter, she tossed her head with an infectious smile,
and with the joy of instant attraction he was swept away, ablaze in the
appeal of her alluring excitement.
With the first touching of hands and soft hellos, with the easy
talking and the sharing of likes and passions and fascinations,
the past of the youth vanished, and he entered another world—
a world of love and harmony blessed with children and fulfillment.
On Earth, a lifetime of seasons came and passed, but the
love endured, even as their children brought the gift of their
own children, offering yet more rapture in the Circle of Life.
In this time of aging and fireside warming, the old man gives
thanks to God for the woman who answered his call of Rescue
Me and knows that blessed are those by the Great Spirit
who serve their chosen companion with the comfort and
security of enduring love.
Daily, now, the old man looks with adoring eyes and recites,
“Only by God’s grace do I know the secret of your abiding presence
in my lodge. Indeed the Creator sent you to answer my plea, Rescue Me.Today, with wisdom born of age and experience,
my heart and soul overflow with the knowledge of a great secret— I was made for you and you were made for me!”
So mote it be.

Determination and faith paint the portrait of a young man on a journey to discovery of what would become his future bride and soulmate. Inspiring and tender, Richard.
