Softly Works the Dark Angel

of last farewells

A short note: Emotional Wave wrote questionong whether or not the dead return to visit. This poem may help answer by mentioning what the process of transition might involve. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Thru anguish and pain She returns once again

Heralds sadness for some, others disdain

They judge Death so harshly, few see the light

Yet when Master calls, behold such a sight

His Dark Angel decends. lost ones looks up arms outstretched to know never again

The struggles endured

Dispelled now his doubts as upward he soars

Darkj Lady again, though feared and despised

Her Master's well served She nestles the prize

Returned to His fields for Shepard's good care

family awaits all gatheres with love cares left below and this be above

Those who remain know little the score

still he now knows the score Yes all will be one, yes all ever more

No East versus West No up over down

No sadness to wear and never a frown

For all left behind a farewell good bye

Said by friends to the last though they never see why

What drummer he marched to from far away band

He's gone now we know to that far distant land

His quest long fulfilled his love as before

Remains to be shared and will ever more.
