I, because it seems so right
To undertake this mission.
I, because ocean's heart
Gives waves silent commission.
I want to relieve the souls
That have not reached perdition.
I cannot perceive how hard
It is to close this fission.
Sweet cherry blossom from the trees,
Float gracefully into the light.
I pray, I am down on my knees.
Will you aid in this eternal fight?
I will surely fall in time
As death comes to disturb sleep.
And patiently the dove does rest
When silently the crows weep.
Around the corners and through the cracks
The darkness begins to seep.
The time it takes you to arrive
Gives time to let the ghosts creep.
Cherry blossoms question the breeze
As they float slowly down.
I can no longer beg you, please,
Turn this war upside down.
