I am Coming, Cawed the Raven

I am coming cawed the raven
As he spread his wings to fly
I will take old men and children
I will still the anxious bride.

You may flee and flee to fight me
But I come, I come, I come.
You may fend me off but slightly,
For you stumble as you run.

So forget me yes, forget me
Though I’m coming, yes, I come.
Make your hearts both fat and empty
And be happy as you run.

That your end may find you sharply
In the twinkle of the night
As your cadence ends abruptly,
And my wings block out the light.

(“I am Coming, Cawed the Raven” © Josiah Meyer, 2010)

Sorrow is better than laughter, For when a face is sad a heart may be happy. The mind of the wise is in the house of mourning, while the mind of fools is in the house of pleasure.” (Ecclesiastes 7:3-4)

“But be sure of this, that if the head of the house had known at what time of the night the thief was coming, he would have been on the alert and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.” (Matthew 24:43-44)
