dead in water.

Dead in Water

 

Lay down, forever to date.

Let agony of water wash away

The utter sadness, the bitter pain.

 

A climbing moon upon a restless sky.

A glowing night, killing mine.

Clouds blot out the man’s cry.

 

May you float away to evermore peace,

Let time take it’s evermore toil.

Till your body rests in soil.

 

Lay down, forever to date.

Let agony of water wash away

The utter sadness, the bitter pain.

 

A setting moon, a lighted sky.

Let your soul set free and fly.

May your life be remembered in mine.

I say goodbye.

 

By Tyler 6R

(This is based on an old tradition of laying dead in canoes, then pushing them into water)
