Heaven's Baby - Poem by Aram Stefanian

After you bit the dust, your soul hovered between the dark and the light
Casting a fleeting glance at its former body, it took a flight
Puzzled to see no light at the end of the dark burrow
It felt mortal fear of utter solitude and profound sorrow

In the eternal still of timeless unlife, it dived into a pitfall
Set by the aerial demons, and wondered what would befall
The doleful souls waited to be summoned before a deemster
No absolution from deadly sins was granted by a monster

When you opened your eyes, you saw an angel sitting on your bed
He flashed a cheerful smile at you, ''Don't worry! You're not dead
That was a close call, and I had time to save your soul
You're reincarnated as heaven's baby, so get ready for a new role''
