If you have "no place to go," come here!

Apropos of Loss

MJS's picture

many speak of god
many pray
some just hold their breath
look the other way

some insist upon
one true light
they clutch their pearls
through the long dark night

come and take it from me
come and take it all away

listen to the mother
she will speak
her words of comfort
her love to seek

take her smile with you
when you go
there is no heaven
that she doesn't know

come and take it from me
come and take it all away

jesus in the garden
cannot pray
bones and mandolins
cold in the grave

when the morning comes
no one speaks
nothing left to auction
to the meek

come and take it from me
come and take it all away

when gods divided
come around
remind them gently
upon the ground

of being, seeing
of it all
no crowns in heaven
none at all

come and take it from me
come and take it all away
