The Souls Of Three

entry picture

What is it that drives my fear 
The way it’s Scaring me 
Is it my last breathe, with family near 
Inviting death to see 
With no other thought, than not to take
My family and their own souls of three 

I saw my life and my wife’s life 
In a kingdom of the light 
And angels wrapped their wings 
that held and gripped us tight 
With a choir that peacefully sing 
I could see my children with harps in heaven 
Playing for my wife and me 

All the while I kept asking why 
In this kingdom of the light 
For 30 years I feared, my families cries 
Of death taking from their sight 
My family with their souls I see  

Why and how did it happen. My life is greater
Than those who murdered me 
Or wronged us greatly now plea   
The angels couldn’t change our fate 
Nor death staring at our family tree 
But this can never separate my soul 
From my dearest family of three 

For We can never part, or indeed start 
Another life than ours, that was free  
Footsteps not walked or speeches talked 
From my family and their souls I can see 
And so by my grave I lie on my side 
Think on my darlings, my wife, my child
Just always with them, as you pass by  
My family and their souls that I flee
