And She Dies--

He searches for them and takes them unawares,
As night turns day and day darkens,
She was cut off before her prime,
Weeping for  a young departed soul

As night turns day and day darkens,
She dines with earthworms with impunity,
Weeping for the young departed soul ,
Who can bail her from this abysmal sleep?

She dines with earthworms with impunity,
Her plan to become an octogenarian dashed,
Who can bail her from this abysmal sleep?
Hopes and aspiration buried in oblivion,

Her plan to become an octogenarian dashed
a vicious guest which the host cannot reject,
Hopes and aspiration buried in oblivion,
Cancer and liver failure ruin a lovely gem,

A vicious guest which the host cannot reject,
She was cut off before her prime,
Cancer and liver failure ruin  a lovely gem,
He searches for them and takes them unawares.
