Treasure Island

Dave Alan Walker

(Pudsey, Leeds)

Where Souls Were Laid To Rest


In the roses of the past
where souls were laid to rest
lies the ashes of the dead

They are waiting peacefully
to return to the life
their living selves
once wished they had

With no wars and no hate
no greed and no death
just souls that become one
bound in warmth and love
