Sit with me,
Where silence knows me;
Hold my hand and let time stray.
Take the helm and sail my sorrow
Over oceans formed of pain.
All will seem
Much better soon
As tribulation starts to fade
For love shall comfort those who sow it,
Here on Earth and in the grave.
Casting shadows on the ground;
Wave away my aching bones
And let my memory lift your frown.
As the pendulum of living
Halts within my withered heart,
As the breeze rejoices,
Welcoming my brand new start.
Upon the final
My soul shall seek your loving face
For severance shall not divide us;
Love’s connection never breaks.
The hurt within
And bury grief below the ground
For I shall ever walk beside you;
To thy heart, my soul is bound.
A smile for me;
The universe awaits my hand
To chase a treasury of dreams
As destiny was never planned.
To be alive again
Amidst the dappled leaves, I’ll run,
Reliving all life’s fleeting moments
Underneath a grinning sun.
I’ll hitch a ride on feathered wings
To scale the snowy mountain tops;
A realm of immortality
Exists within the Land of Nod.
Upon the days
When sorrow calls
And colours fade to black and white,
Go, look for me in whispering trees
For there is where you’ll find my light.
