A GOOD NIGHT TO DIE

A GOOD NIGHT TO DIE

It is a good night to die
As the mist rolls in and
My soul is desperate
To be released
From a body weary
And now of limited use

It is a good night to die
As the after- life calls and
Echoes through the mist
That envelops so thick

The enchantment that swirls in the air
Unlocks the shackles 
That binds my soul
And I’m being set free

I go gladly

It is a good night to die
Up to the moon the wind
Blows my soul
Cleansing me of all my troubles 

I look down below 
At the useless clay shell
Now turning to dust
I need it no more 

It is a good night to die
As breath no longer heaves
My chest
Or beats a heart that 
Was full of woe

The reaper has come 
And I lead the way
To the other side

It is a good night to die
For my journey has ended
And my work here is done

    Powerful, emotional and rips at the heart. I wonder if it is you or someone else? Allan

    Apparently also a good night to write because the depth of this is amazing. Very nicely penned Samuel!
