Death’s Lullaby


When the waves bash the stern,
Sun flares arc and fires burn.
Darkness envelopes the waking day,
Hope runs scared, runs far away.

A breeze flies past their stone-cast face,
Tear drops rejuvenate in its place.
Sunlight fights the gloom and doom,
Love breaks through till there’s no more room.

Dance away the scarlet sky,
Dance away the bye and bye.
Free men laugh while the widows cry.
Death has lost its lullaby.

Dance away the sapphire moon,
Dance away, they’ll come home soon.
Free men laugh while the orphans cry.
No more dark-death lullaby.
