A Little While Longer

st. augustine was a man like me
he was full of life and full of disease
when he made his plea, he said, “leave me be
just a little while longer”

but then a little while will never come
it might show its head a minute but then it runs
it might say, “how do you do?” but then it leaves you black and blue
and you hurt all over

‘til the day when all those dead ends die
and you can’t see a thing ‘cause you’re finally blind
and then a man spits in your eyes, and then that little while dies
and you stare god in the face

i’m a wanderer still moving onward
i may turn around sometimes, but i still hunger
for a resting place where i might find the warmth of an embrace
that i left a lifetime ago
