A Blinding Silence

Posted on Laura’s facebook on 17 August 2013 when she was living in Portugal. She had used the ‘only me’ posting option so I didn’t see it until months after her death. A prayer before dying. I will credit the writer in due course.

A Blinding Silence

“I say a prayer for you in this failing final hour.

He wants to take you home.

Just say a prayer for me and smile in my defeat

And live to suffer this no more.

I celebrate in the light of you

Breathed life from you, I fall apart without you

What can I do? It is burning inside you

I say a prayer for you, what will I do without you?

What more can I do? it is burning inside you.

I say a prayer for you. It is burning inside you.

Tell me what to do. It is burning inside you.

Just tell me what to do in this fading final hour

Before you have to go

Just say a prayer for me, a sand upon the sea

I’m hearing angels at the door

I celebrate in the light of you

Breathed life from you, I fall apart without you

What can I do? It is burning inside you

I say a prayer for you, what will I do without you?

What more can I do? It is burning inside you.

I say a prayer for you. It is burning inside you.

Tell me what to do. It is burning inside you.”
