Departure From Life


 

Her burdens are heavy

 

They show on her face

 

Her eyes they are sunken

 

By so much disgrace

 

Her wounds they are ugly

 

They leave awful scars

 

Yet she has hope

 

That burns bright like a star.

 

She clings to that hope

 

Wishing she'd stay

 

Down here on earth

 

To live another day.

 

Her heart may be cold

 

It may be as cold as ice

 

But she only wants love

 

That would be nice.

 

So she wishes

 

She wonders

 

She waits

 

And she prays

 

That someone would come and take her away.

 

Years she has waited

 

Yet no one has come

 

She knows it is time

 

To return to her home.

 

She doesn’t want to leave

 

But she can’t decide

 

On her fate

 

For it’s the path that lies

 

Just beyond the river

 

Of destiny

 

And the mountain of hope

 

Its after those wonderful things

 

That it’s time to go.

 

Go where?

 

Why home of course

 

Up in the sky

 

In a beautiful place

 

Where love never ends

 

And you live out your days

 

So with a shudder

 

She takes her last breath.

 

Now she can rest

 

Now she can sing

 

Now she laugh

 

As loud as she wants

 

Now she is free

 

At long, long last

 

She departed


Just like that.
