Dying is only one thing to be sad over... Living unhappily is something else.

REMEMBERING THE SKY

ER CRITICAL CARE TRAUMA UNIT A

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

11:34 am

08-29-18


Chaos of deafening screams

Reality has fled, left with only daydreams

Here I stand in mental confusion

Tears of disillusion

God help me please

Souls dropping today to their knees

Anyone have a tissue

Blood, guts, no glory, no wishes

Is my existence mended into someone’s pain

Last breath, last rites, never to feel or see the rain

God, I look to you each and every day

People have love, faith, yet, for the ones swept away

Is their justice in death after the last breath

Eyes closed for eternal rest

Can souls see, can they feel our grief

Will Heaven pour their tears to give us earthly relief

Chaotic deafening screams

Peace be still, so serene

So loud I can’t drown them out

Pastor I sit in the pew, yet, this scene is nothing to shout about

Man gives liberty, God permits death

A coat to embrace the coldness, the stillness that remains left

Live life, when the crossroads we come to

Unexpected hollers for one last just due

Archangel Azrael, has the book of life in his hand

Page open, for woman, child, or man

The last breath surrendered, the first day of your life

Gabriel’s horn heard to announce entrance, or denial of strife

Bow daily as you live

I’ve seen the look of death, when the organs have no more to give

Love, even if you hate

This world shall pass, the pride of your praise should always be Heaven’s Pearly Gates

Chaos of deafening screams, a kiss to the afterlife as souls fly

In this moment in time, I am remembering the sky
