Heaven’s Night

Fractured spirits – comb the air
staying ‘tween this midnight fair –
and October moon, full and red –
reminding we of long lost dead…
The mourning cries beyond dawn’s light –
of evil’s scorn and other’s fright –
Ghost’s howl into darkened mist –
But seek refuge in shadow’s kiss –
when moon falls pale and sun do rise.
lain showers of love from God’s own eyes –
And we these humble tales do tell
of a night which bourne such hell….
My Lord, My Lord, dearly Thee sever me –
from this earthen talon of devil’s majesty.
Release my heart and soul to thee –
Sweet death to set my spirit free.
Lest my fate is not of heaven’s sight –
but whisked away to eternity’s night.
And such, to Thee, should be my plight –
that heaven’s door not be locked tonight….
