Go Now, Unto Your Silent Sleep - Poem by Frank James Ryan Jr (FjR)

She said, ''Go now...unto your silent sleep'',
Christ's Seraphim's await your deliverance,
Behind pillars of a Kingdom bare of crosses,
The sacred metamorphosis from body to soul.

Go now, my love, to your sweet forever life,
Leave behind the affliction that stole our time.
Holy flames I lit, all extinguished by tears -
It's time I pray, now, to the Cross for closure.

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

Go now, in peace, and greet The Eye of God;
Where Angel wings flutter and spirits dance.
You have earned your place in His Holy Kingdom.
Time you go now love, until again we meet.
