Faraway Man

Faraway Man

Somewhere distant an owl hoots
A crotchety crow sets the mood
Trees wave in howling wind
Beneath, rickety tombstones sing
Oh seraph, oh seraph wake us up
It is cold here in the dark 
Oh seraph, oh seraph your promises
So soothing before 
Hollow souls, unanswered prayers
Lying and waiting for the Savior
Despaired and betrayed
Above, the sky cold and grey 
Is it epiphany?
Or faith uncanny
