Go Now, Unto Your Silent Sleep...
Go now, she said...go unto your silent sleep,
Christ's Seraphim awaits 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.
