Death draws souls like no other event of life
The final farewell, a last chance to acknowledge
Life’s end, untimely the call to one’s demise.
Ceasing to exist for the living, soul where art thou?
In release thou revelling, a freedom born to thee
The living in sorrow drowning here, doth thou see?
Worry for them that shoulder life’s burden
The loved ones that thou hath left behind
Rejoice in thy release, thy lightened baggage
O thou in unfailing love shower all thy blessings
Thy demise let not be for the living to suffer.
