Come Friendly Bombs

08:30:00 Posted by Colin Davies , , , , , , 5 comments
Come hold me now,
Come see the sun,
Come stand with me until the morning comes.
And as the warm red sky of dawn ignites,
We wave good bye to the bad dreams,
Of those monsters in the night.

And with only minutes left,
We remember fallen friends,
And give thanks to the life,
The life we had,
The life that we left behind.

Come smiling tanks
Come friendly Bombs,
Come lay waste to our towns with your loud song.
And as the building fires burn bright,
We welcome back in to our minds,
The monsters in the night.

And with only time to spend,
We count our missing friends.
And give thanks to the life,
The life we had,
The life that we left behind.

Come sit with me,
Come dry my tears,
Come help with the pain of all my years.
And as my own dusk starts to fall,
I understand your feeling Dad,
As your bell began to toll.

And with only moment till the end,
I see my long lost friends.
And give thanks to the life,
The life I had,
The life that I leave behind.

A lament Colin? I sthere no end to your talent. Simple and deeply moving. I love the way it turns back turns to conclude.
