Wait for me


When your work is done
And the waters are calm,
When the trees bring down their boughs and cloak the day,
Do not be afraid

When breath becomes still
And life begins to fade
When your eyes are softened by my fathers gentle hand,
Do not be afraid


When the journey ends
And eternity begins
When the Angels come down to bring you peace,
Do not be afraid

I have watched you shine
And I shall watch you fade
I will be there when you soul enters my home
Do not be afraid

With love I let go
And love has brought you back
When life is done and heaven begins, wait for me
And do not be afraid

Nice piece, very good.
