Moonlight has taken her stand

Moonlight has taken her stand 
when she told the slave to sing the garden of love
lay down all your pains to the heavens above
then gently her hands caressed all that had their heads knelled down
then she started to sing to the God and the Lord 
to come and take control over each and every ones soul
Oh, how the scent of burning candles all around the room
where the tears fall like rain in late June,
her heart was filled with so much pain 
even the angels could see her life has been possessed
but her heart and spirit so clean
as the slaves could hear her pray out in the rain
while they listen they could hear her tears fall 
while they each raised up there glass
crying out saying this will soon pass
while they all watch Moonlight walk in the garden of tears
they could see her transparent, untrampled love water the land
where she stands among the roses of the beautiful garden
that she loves so much,
you could see the silken threads of her tears fall as they weaving 
into the soil of true love,as she cried inwardly 
you could see the blades of time cut her deep as she weeps
asking God and her Lord to forgive all for their sins.
