Broken Ballad

Song; Broken Ballad

There is a song I wish to sing
As a friend is dying
He is also listening
To the sigh of the valley
And the whispering wind
To the notes of my song
Flying to carry him

Away from his pain
And away from his sorrow
Into the day, happiness to follow
Must he be bound -
To the chains of his bed?
Though the earth is 20 storeys
Below Him

Soon he must break,
And soon it must be
For the mercy of God
So said it should be

To leave his lone mother
Alone on her throne
She is a queen that is broken
Still singing a song
If she is defeated -
Will she move on?

The days are outnumbered
And the time it has gone
For the time that we know,
Was time long ago

And the time that we see
Is fading away oh so slowly
In his eyes as he lies,
We see time dying - as he dies

After prayer comes realization and acceptance, that maybe there really is no god to hear it... thank you

Yeah. This reads as a poem and as a song lyric. And I love the way if flows and weaves.
