Remembering The Sky

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania  
11:34 am  

Chaos of deafening screams  
Reality has fled, left with only daydreams  
Here I stand in mental confusion  
Tears of disillusion  
God help me please  
Souls dropping today to their knees  
Anyone have a tissue  
Blood, guts, no glory, no wishes  
As a nurse, is my existence mended into someone elseís pain  
Last breath, last rites, never to feel or see the rain  
God, I look to you each and every day  
People have love, faith, yet, for the ones swept away  
Is their justice in death after the last breath  
Eyes closed for eternal rest  
Can souls see, can they feel our grief  
Will Heaven pour their tears to give us earthly relief  
Chaotic deafening screams  
Peace be still, so serene  
So loud I canít drown them out  
Pastor I sit in the pew, yet, this scene is nothing to shout about  
Man gives liberty, God permits death  
A coat to embrace the coldness, the stillness that remains left  
Live life, when the crossroads we come to  
Unexpected hollers for one last just due  
Archangel Azrael, has the book of life in his hand  
Page open, for woman, child, or man  
The last breath surrendered, the first day of your life  
Gabrielís horn heard to announce entrance, or denial of strife  
Bow daily as you live  
Iíve seen the look of death, when the organs have no more to give  
Love, even if you hate  
This world shall pass, the pride of your praise should always be Heavenís Pearly Gates  
Chaos of deafening screams, a kiss to the afterlife as souls fly  
In this moment in time, I am remembering the sky

Dying is only one thing to be sad over... Living unhappily is something else.
