As I Lay

As I lay
                                                                          By Maria Sharon Moemise

The signs of time edged on my face
the rivers of sorrows leaving my being
As I lay in state, awaiting oblivion
the stars above to erase my suffering

Prayers ringing for my soul to rest
Tears dripping, memories flowing
A black cloud turning to white light,
beckoning, whispering my name 
I'm ready, I relent and loose the fight

Silence... No it's Angel's song
I float like a dry leave on a cloud,
arms stretched, awaiting acceptance
I'm on my final journey to deliverance 

A tribute to one who fought and lost
My heart is still, my soul set free
As I lay in Glory, I hear you cry
I leave you with a love that will never die.
