What Graveyard Guardians Do

I saw some Graveyard Guardian,
Was he keeping them asleep?
Keeping them at peace?
Lulling them back to a deathly slumber...

...So that they don't have to cross over
To find the Light to a greater reality
To true life...
Maybe they don't want to live...

They want to sleep,
They are tired of living,
Tired of the fight...
They don't want the light any more....

Maybe they asked him to keep watch
As they go back to sleep
Not wanting to live again...
A choice to stay ignorant and unknowing....

A choice to shut down their awareness...
I Don't know for how long...
But they are just tired...
They lack the fight...

They are done fighting
Done with living some more
They just "go away Light..
Your Life has hurt me too much already!"

And maybe cry on
"Do you really think I owe the Light something?
Do you really think I owe you something?
Do you really think I owe God something?
The world and the world beyond does not need my light!!!"

It must be sad...
A choice to shut off completely,
To just lie in the darkness not wanting to be disturbed
Done with shining and making someone else's life worth the while....

So they ask the Graveyard Guardian:
"Be patient and watch over us as we slumber and take us across Nyx when we are ready!!!"
