  1.     

Thought and Memory (Huginn and Muninn)

O’er the waters of time
My attention is quickly drawn
As Thought soars the heavens with
Memory at its side

By thorn and thicket we have passed
At times we struggle through
As that around us tears and shreds
Yet time we abide

Travel we birds of like feather
Black as night, strong as day
A reflection, one to another
Two arrows taking flight

We chance upon the wind
Unyielding as the grave
Our ballad, sight and sorrow
Two ravens in the night
 
Christopher Thor Britt
   
 

   
   
 

  2.     

Layed To Rest

The distant sound of foot fall as
I trod a barren land
Diminished to an echo thru my heart

My search thru pain and tears has
Brought me to this tearful stand
Encompassed by the fears of a new start

Grieve I for this heart of love
Forever laid to rest
Mine emptiness, in part, a hardened shell

The struggle to surrender fights
Temptation to resist
Who will be the victor? Time will tell.
 
Christopher Thor Britt
   
 

   
   
 

  3.     

By Your Side

Late morning rays feel their way up the bedroom wall
A reminder that the day had just begun
Cool sheets hug your contour and on me also fall
As I, first to wake, do loathe the sun.

Still, I lay there awed by your face in morning light
Your look of sweet repose calls out to me
A sigh escapes your parted lips in memory of the night
With a playful smile, brief though it may be.

When at last my love, your eyes they opened wide
Into my own they found me deep in wonder
From dream to waking dream there I lay still by your side
And from your side I nevermore will wander.
 
Christopher Thor Britt
   
 

   
   
 

  4.     

Endless Night

Barely is man alive before
Death comes to claim his bride.
Thus betrothed we must abide
Less willing, the groom to meet

Death feigns to court us from the rift of
Time and space. He sends his gifts of
War and plague and violent shifts
His harvest soon to reap

When the endless night does come and
Life upon the Earth is done
No place for wanton souls to run
Their maker soon will meet

If you die before you wake and
Find you’ve made a grave mistake
Your prayers, too little and much too late
May find deaf ears to boot

But, if you wake before you die and
Take the blinders from your eyes
You’ll see that death is but a lie and
Live to see the truth
