Weary Angel

print

Weary angel of death you’ve claimed another
One so young and so very full of life
Your cold cold hands have reached down to take my darlin
weary angel of death you took my wife

    Now each day I wait for you to come and take me
    To the place where my darlin is gone
    Won’t your reach your icy fingers out to touch me
    Weary angel please don’t make me wait too long

Did you take her cause you needed her like I do
Were you jealous of the love she showed for me
I could never understand no other reason
Why I must live my life in misery

Until then I know in dreams I’ll still see her
For death has only made me love her more
And I know I’ll be ready to go with her
Weary angel when you knock upon my door
