Requiem for The Revenant Returned

Requiem for the revenant returned
Not to home but to the stars above us;
The warm fire of which his soul had burned
Praise be the revenant, gallant chorus.
Still, within us, he will stay whole, alive
A song to sing, a story to ponder,—
A soul filled with darkness that we should strive
To understand, to question and wonder.
Never know, shall we, his innermost death
We are not he, surely, he is not we;
Wonder us, during his last, final breath
Did he repent and did God set him free?
Requiem for these revenants unknown
For, in the end, they leave unnamed, alone.
