FREE CEE only if that time arrives









ONLY WHEN AND IF THAT TIME ARRIVES

Wake me up when it’s over and done
Whereupon the madness takes its final bow
Shake me awake when again shines the sun
But I beg you please, don’t wake me up right now

Please let me sleep until I no longer have to weep
Allow my slumber to number the days until it finally ends
Don’t remove my quilt or the hope upon which my life is built
Only wake me when no one need be plagued by guilt

Please don’t ask me to arise to see the beautiful skies
Because to me they are laden with clouds and rain
Open my eyes when demons discontinue donning their disguise
And when madness is no longer all the Lord has to ordain

So let me sleep deeply until what is to be done is thus to be done
Awake me when no more madmen see killing as their duty
Shake me awake when no one need carry nor possess any gun
And the ugliness of this world is turned into begotten beauty
© 2010…..free cee!
