Gone before dawn 3

  • Today is indeed the 3rd dawn
  • Your flames are now gone
  • And nothing can be done
  • Many things you have forgone
  • As u have left us all alone.

 

  • You have fallen asleep
  • And we have tried to plead
  • So that you’ll be freed
  • But you’ve gone too deep
  • And that’s why we weep
  • But soon you’ll be redeemed.

 

  • As I wrote this script
  • I stopped and wept
  • For I felt this contempt
  • That every earthly man shall corrupt
  • And it is a fact we should accept
  • For only the heavens are incorrupt.

 

  • Your presence keeps fading
  • But your memories are always lasting
  • Even the heavens ignored our groaning
  • Holding back until the day of reckoning
  • But we kept on supplicating and beseeching
  • Hoping there will be a day of answering.

 

  • The heavens can attest
  • That the earth has been unjust.
  • Though our tears have been sorest
  • We still have to adapt and adjust
  • Then pray we do not combust
  • As we all are mere dust.

 

  • You left behind a mantle
  • Which we will wear as a model.
  • We pray we do not shrivel
  • We pray we do not rebel
  • As we hope to enter the real Bethel.

 

  • We know our tears will soon dispel
  • When we meet u again with ‘El. *

 

  • For you are Gone to Return
  • And we love you in turn.
