ON MY KNEES FOR MY NIECE

 

T`was eventide

`Fore she died

Felt the shadow`s lull

Heard the meadow`s call

Felt when she flew

Yes I knew...

 

The sky...

T`was so beautiful

The shore...

From it I write

The tide was down

The moon was blue

But she never knew

This was her rite of passage

 

She`s a girl-child

She reads mum`s mind

She saw the blush

The day she was born

Daddy`s soul was so cold

Two numb hearts

They choked her all

They ignored her call

And crushed her doll

 

But then came the boy,

They poured out their joy

They were always at his side

Every time he cried

Soon she was forced to step aside

She`d lost her sweet smile

"My Parents dont care,

It`s not fair:("

She cried her heart to me

But i was scorned

For heeding the girl-child`s plea.

 

At the end'

My sweet niece died

She relinguished life

I know she`s in heaven

For she died with a smile-

A smile only angels could enworden

The smile of the fairyland

The cry of Patmos island

Cry and smile intertwined

A mixture so hard to find

I recall returning the smile

The smile of the girl-child
