Bless The Child

“I was born amidst the purple waterfalls. I was weak, yet not unblessed. Dead to the world. Alive for the journey. One night I dreamt a white rose withering, a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness. I dreamt all my future. Relived my past. A witnessed the beauty of the beast” Where have all the feelings gone? Why has all the laughter ceased? Why am I loved only when I’m gone? Gone back in time to bless the child Think of me long enough to make a memory Come bless the child one more time How can I ever feel again? Given the chance would I return? I’ve never felt so alone in my life As I drank from a cup which was counting my time There’s a poison drop in this cup of Man To drink it is to follow the left hand path “Where have all the feelings gone? Why is the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you? Now unblessed, homesick in time, soon to be freed from care, from human pain. My tale is the most bitter truth: Time pays us but with earth & dust, and a dark, silent grave. Remember, my child: Without innocence the cross is only iron, hope is only an illusion & Ocean Soul’s nothing but a name… The Child bless thee & keep thee forever”
