A Prayer

Death came out of  the sky.

Those left  behind can only  ask why.

Their loved ones  snatched  so cruelly  from them

They were just innocent souls not yet ready for heaven.

 

May  the good lord take these souls and give  them peace.

May  their loved ones  be given answers and release.

May  their  murders be brought  to book, named  and shamed

May  this please stop now, may  the like of  this not be  seen again.

 

 

Edge of Infinity

Alone in silence and at  the edge

My silence bought so cheaply

Fears rising  from depths I dare not dredge.

Slipping from this reality into infinity.

 

A hair’s breadth miss of  the angel’s sword

He  has spared me  with just a threat.

Always I’d  walked  the righteous path was this my reward?

Done all that was ever asked of me, I am in no one’s debt.

 

So subserviently I hung  my head

I helped with open heart  the living

While truly  and quietly I  mourned  the dead.

Received what I was owed while  happy to be giving

 

Yet here I am deserted left out here on my own

In  need of love and comfort feeling  needy.

Why should I feel so lost and alone

Slipping from this reality into infinity.
