My child who was laid to rest
In the stillness of mind
You are within my thoughts

Though time has gone by
Still you creep up
Within these chambers

Yet my tears now 
For most are dried
I kiss you now
For one more last time
In mind I have said this
So many times.

Now too I must find my way
Still for me to have time to live
My sweet child you were

I have learned through you
Time, all is time
To become whole, to be complete
To be!

But with all tears so many shed
Love must shine within all
Yes shine,
To be a pillar in someone else's storm
To soothe, to help in someone else's
Pain and grief
Sleep now my child
Sleep till we meet again.
