Soul In The Sky - Poem by Taher Shemaly

By the sky my soul was flying
leaving my dead body behind
A corpse of coldness I had left
falling beside a sweet of a kind
For life struggles did not have a meaning
since my heart's eyes went blind
Bleeding it is but made of stones pile
nay my mistake, but my fate was been tiled

In heavens watching I was
keeping an eye over my admire
Let me lose the whole world if ye like
but not that piece of my little empire
It is all what I've got after life
nay thrones, nay a shire
If fortune could buy me lost souls
I wouldn't have leave it to ye with my desire

Lament ye birdies, and ye green trees
and my tears will fall in common with thy
Crying is an art I've known early in my life
and no help to do it is needed by
Tell all lovers ever existed in this life
there is a pearl had been lost by I
Nay to be founded, nor to be shined
but for me, and upon I should cry

    Taher Shemaly -

    The soul can not sleep in any house, see my 'If I Should Lose My Soul' and see if we agree.

    Good writing - Cheryl
