King - Poem by Michael Lafferty

Time has fallen and slipped away
never to be seen to this day
it begs for freedom it begs for air..

something noone would ever dare!

until he came...

He was our hopes he was my dreams
he was the everlasting king

And till this day the children still say..

Come home great king of what we once knew
we begged and begged still we got nothing from you
You promised us gold, you promised it soon
until you're fatle night

the last we ever knew..
We love you

He sang such a sweet song
before he was gone
he suttered a tune
sowed the wound to the door
that would open to noone... evermore

and they still sang his song
something that will always live on and on

they sang..

Come home great king of what we once knew
we begged and begged but you left us too soon

You tore the hearts from the innocent
and you stepped on the fallen to succeede

but still... still.. i... i plead

Plead that you'll come home rescue me
from the darkness
within for your my sin
and my only to be... i love thee forever more
don't let us step inside the door

ANYMORE

So lets just say, that you'll be beside
me everyday

AND When!

When i come home again, i hope that you'll stay..

I hope that you'll say
Stay with me and we could be forever in eachothers arms

and the children sang! !

Come home great king of what we once knew
we begged and begged and pleaded for you
but you only came before the rain..

Nothing lies here anymore just a story and nothing more..

Come home great king of what we once knew
we begged and begged still we got nothing from you
You promised us gold, you promised it soon
until you're fatle night it happened too soon..
