Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

The Song in My Head

October 15, 2006

Please Don’t Make Us Sing This Song
from Psalm 137

By the rivers of Babylon we sat and wept
And thought of home so far away
On the branches of the willow trees we hung our harps
And hid our hearts from the enemy
And the men that surrounded us made demands
That we clap our hands and sing

Please don’t make us sing this song
We used to be happy
When we were free and home
If I can’t remember
May I never sing a song again

I can’t, I won’t
I feel so far away
