The Angel of Death came and took you away
I stood afar on the shore and watched as they shipped you down on the tray
Many things that I wanted to say, but it was only silence,
That filled the air that day
Silence, and the sound of sirens
Wails, howls and carrying-on cries
The stroke that unleashed the heavy yet gentle sighs
Release relief and whispers of patience and peace
Let it slowly seep and settle into the night
The dawn breaks and the mind boggles,
At the strength, weakness and injustice the body endures
Forgiveness is what it longs for
Hope and Faith and Love and Lore
Understanding that something lies special at the center, in the core
Unending is the life that awaits us, hereafter, now and forevermore
Breathing, isn’t it all?
When you see them standing side by side, mighty, so tall.
Is it a privilege or a curse?
To see the last breath taken in before us
Difficult to determine the worst
Knowing what lays ahead, the sacred, alluring, upcoming task.
Withheld from me was that monumental moment
Closure, the carving of the final composition
How I wished my hands were the ocean
So I could’ve openly displayed the gift of my devotion
By lapping the soft waves of affection
To strengthen the blessings regarding your resurrection
Hidden beneath the hedge grows
Stand the four corners of the earth
The borderline of my vision and human position
Seeks the sunlight which will soon cushion,
The happy sorrow of yesteryears and the song
That echoes in line with this sudden fission
Right or wrong
The heart intends to remain strong
Dignity and Grace, two elements we wish to remain intact and trace,
On the floor of the unknown, but even more so, the known
3 questions and 3 answers
Falter and you’ll lose in the face of certainty, the game between the threshold of life and death
Simple enough? Just a test? The coming of the Slayer.
Blessed, it’s the
Moon of Holy Fast and Prayer
Nothing more, nothing less than a mortal sinner
Back in the soil, life starts anew, zero, back to a beginner
Look from below, up above and you’ll see
Freedom from strife, oh concord, it will be.
