A Child Of His

I saw the summer lose her warmth

I saw the winter raise her head

All the flowers lost their charm

All the trees — they looked so dead

And I didn’t know why

I heard the angels shivering

While the heavens were trembling

The nasty wounds within myself —

Those echoes were resembling

And I didn’t know why

I caught the Devil and I asked him

“I am just a child of His

Spare me or kill me

But don’t leave me hanging like this.”

The winds whispered soft’ to me

About the blood they carried free

All through her lamentations

Not a word came back to me

And I didn’t know why

So I set off, I walked the earth

Rising above the frozen dirt

I kept the secrets to myself

Of my pain, my grief, my hurt

And I didn’t know why
