Go Now, Unto Your Silent Sleep...


Go now, she said...go unto your silent sleep,
Christ's Seraphim's await your deliverance,
Behind pillars of a Kingdom void of crosses,
And the pass of body to soul consummating.

Go now, to your sweet forever life...my love.
Leave now- the affliction behind you and fly,
Holy flames i lit, now extinguished by tears -
It's time I weep against the cross I bear now.

Life's inevitable silence- has no stipulations;
It's but time and place, the only question be.
Destiny- has its penchant for cruel kindness
When we sense relief despite the bitter grief

Go now, in peace, and greet The Eye of God;
Where Angel wings flutter and spirits dance.
Suffering stills...lament be left behind for us.
Time you go now love, unto your silent sleep.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
