Lady Of Mortality

Written by: Sandy Mason

She is waiting in time's shadow

Wrapped in night's whisper 

Fever crowns her head with fire

She wears illness as her garment 

Heartache is her design 

Her soul less eyes reflect 

Absence of life 

Her mouth draws breath 

Leaving emptiness 

She lifts life's veil 

Death embraces sorrow 

Flowers blanket stone memories 

Grief weeps to an orchestra of pain
