It's about your soul...


Souls Wait
By Robert M Powell and Eric Powell © 2009

Souls wait in a line
Just to have a lifetime
And live like you do
This world can be so crazed
But souls are unfazed
They’re needin’ to come through

They were hoverin’ in a stasis
In ethereal places
With no name and no face
What’s a soul to do
But catch a wave
In a womb
All the way to the tomb

It’s just a chance to get
A glance of it
To know it’s real
Souls wait in a line

Now you’re in a field
Sun on your face
Warm wind blowin’ through
Now you can know
What is real
And taste what is true

And when our glances meet
From across the veil
All around us recedes
As we set sail
Here at last
The void is vast
There’s nothin’ to grasp
This too shall pass

Souls Wait (page 2 of 2)

It’s just a chance to get
A glance of it
To know it’s real
Souls wait in a line

Souls wait in a line
Through the well of time
To join in the play
But through thick and thin
Without and within
They’re gonna find their way

So bring it on sweet life
We’re here to live
We were singin’ out
Just a yearnin’ for this
The love and loss
The give and take
Just to taste a slice
Of the birthday cake

It’s just a chance to get
A glance of it
To know the real
