Rest, Warrior

I can lay down my head to sleep here

It’s so very quiet in this place

I know it’s time for me to go now

Into the peace of His embrace

My sword is sheathed beside me

Silent as the stars at night

It too shall pass on with me

Weary from the constant fight

All around are the people who love me

Each preparing their final goodbye

Take comfort in the depths that I love you

More than all the stars in the sky

Mourn if you must, but keep living

Forget, if it’s easier to bare

Sit atop the mountain peak at sunrise

In that moment, I too, shall be there
