IN MEMORY


Softly, softly sing
Of life, and death, and all between.
Let the night mist
Cloak all my pain
Star light, star bright,
Make me whole again.
Sweet River wander,
At my feet shall the rest.
Forever, ever fly,
Take my heart away to the sky.
Away ye tears,
Follow me never more.
For I am light,
And darkness shall not stir.
Fiery, fiery, sun shall lie,
Close thine eyes and say goodbye.
Nonny, nonny, hum to the ocean,
I shall rise from thy depths,
And live again.
Ancient stones…
Swaying secrets…
Forever locked in shape.
Rise from the earth and fade.
Life, in death, shall become green.
The rain will always be.

Very moving and illuminating. I understand you better with each verse you write.
