Headstone

Monet | Break Up of Ice, Lavacourt

 

Headstone
 Like walking in a cemetery, I don’t need a headstone to remember you by, I pass through the panic peaks of weather, the wind is dropping down to only a whisper, I need to go outside and stay, until I put myself together, where the air out there is free, for me, my reality is unraveling, and all I have are a dead man’s clothes to wear, I know I’m a fool but I can’t help it, everything I touch ends up terrible, I need to go outside and stay, until I put myself together, where the air out there is free, for me, I’m afraid I interrupted something, although Graveyard talk is one-sided, the work I do can be done with My eyes shut, We sure pick a funny place to hide, I need to go outside and stay, until I put myself together, where the air out there is free, for me, if I give this up then you’ll know, it was over my dead body, I keep coming back for more, because I live as though dying

Everlasting

 

Sargent | Roses

Everlasting

I will fill my flask
with new wine at last
blessed is he who keeps his garments

You have loved us with
everlasting love
and preserved us with your covenant

Your arms are Everlasting
Ever to Everlasting
Ever to Everlasting

Ever to Everlasting

Sargent | Landscape with Rose Trellis

Ever to Everlasting

In your name I pray
we turn in the way
to your secret place and dwell

I will serve you, Lord
here on €arth and there
in the place you have prepared

Your arms are Everlasting
Ever to Everlasting
Ever to Everlasting
