An invitation



In low voiceless tone
Lady Death, arrive!
calling us in sounds
only souls can hear
For to human senses
are these sounds denied
As our muse of destiny
shields our life from fear

Within winds of winter
like in frozen ground
Lies the soundless voice
of our human fear
In the silent sound
of our soundless senses
Life harmonic feelings
are withheld so dear

Come; free the spirits
with your silent call
Let your voiceless call
end the human reign
For today I beg,
with your soundless voice
End the life of us
who must die in pain
