An Angel No Longer Bound By Earthly Chains
Under a quiet sky of peaceful dreaming
Her heart rose to greet her last breath
Her eyes beneath her sealed eyelids were still beaming
Even now her strongest love conquers death.
The chains that bound her to the ground
Are now nothing more than blocks of ice dissolved
And no torment or pain is to be found
Her heart sees itself in every familial mirror loved.
Her soul shook forever in beautiful bliss
As she released herself from this life's chains
And the deepest of her deep love gave a kiss
To a life that is now free from all pains.
Christ lifts her up from oblivion
Giving her the tongue to speak her soul
As it yearns for an eloquence divine
The heart within her heart reaches its goal.
Mrs. Bowles dreams her biggest dream
As a divine love gives her freedom
And everything to her is beyond what it may seem
If her heart gave up faith for life's fleeting home.
Her daughters watch upon her journey
As their minds seek to penetrate her eyes
In order to know what she could see
And tell the ultimate truth from the ultimate lies.
Her son closes his eyes upon knowing that tomorrow
His heart will travel across
A pain that is the deepest sorrow
Because he knows a deeper faith comes with loss.
She hears a knock upon the door
As Christ waits for her love to join his
In a journey to the place where love is something more
Than can be seen through the eyes.
Her family weeps a collective tear
A single drop that consumes their shared heart
As they look upon the sky and fear
No more as they are together even when apart.
She holds the hand of Christ as they walk
In a path full of heavenly light
And her heart speaks a silent talk
That tells her that everything is alright.
The time has come to say farewell
Until the remaining souls release themselves from their shell.
