Sojourner ballad

My soul traveler
tired and weary
Come, sit with me
under this ancient tree.
unburden and rest

your journey’s over
Come lie down
under this spreading tree.
Ah!you tell me
you were too young
and the days were short
but you see,
that’s the way it is.

Ah!you tell me
your dreams wither
your life half lived
you left in haste
no pep talk or farewell.
Now we lie ,you and me
young and old
side by side
death has no considerations.
All that remains of us
is a tomb,
with an epitaph
Marble or stone
it doesn’t matter.

Ah! your asleep
your loved ones have left
soon we will be a memory
remembered annually
with flowers and candles
and incense sticks.
Sleep on soul traveler
till someone wakes us
another life,another place?
