Skyward tears weep adieu 
Mingling with blades of grassy dew
Solemness stirs the dandy mellow,
The sunset fades to amber yellow

Loam cradles a casket stark
as sorrow lays heavy and dark
mourn not for mine earthly refrains
for a heart reminiscence remains

Butterflies evanescent flutter by
on whisper soft a zephyr sigh
Keep thoughts of tender remnant
embedded in a heart's contentment

A wayward soul shines bright,
On the vast bespangled night
Sharing it's wonder above
Akin beacons of twinkling love

I bid thee live on,
to champion another dawn
Fleeting is we graced upon this plane
Bittersweet is mortal reign 

Hold fast we shall embrace again,
when time runs to an end.
I shall alight on heaven's floor,
Awaiting unity once more.
