Vigil

Work Text:

Souls on All Souls Day are staying asleep
No matter how solemn a vigil you keep
Sit and keep waiting, if that's what you will
But the dead in their graves will stay silent and still

Souls on All Souls Day are not coming back
You're not worth returning – too much that you lack
Fifty long years, and you still haven't learned?
The fire's gone out but you're still getting burned

Souls on All Souls Day are staying away
Doesn't matter how often you wish and you pray
But maybe this time, when you stay here all night,
Though they're not coming back

…there's a chance that they might.
