Angels Fall First

An angelface smiles to me Under a headline of tragedy That smile used to give me warmth Farewell - no words to say Beside the cross on your grave And those forever burning candles Needed elsewhere To remind us of the shortness of your time Tears laid for them Tears of love tears of fear Bury my dreams dig up my sorrows Oh Lord why The angels fall first? Not relieved by thoughts of Shangri-La Nor enlightened by the lessons of Christ I’ll never understand the meaning of the right Ignorance lead me into the light Needed elsewhere… Sing me a song Of your beauty Of your kingdom Let the melodies of your harps Caress those whom we still need Yesterday we shook hands My friend Today a moonbeam lightens my path My guardian
