For him, who is gone

A life besotted to its fall

Pleasing no one, but loving all

It's only in one's memory now

Strange that not one could see it all.

 

Incapable of hues so bright and bold

We did only what we were told

We left the flower to wait for sun

When we could have at least tried to sun

 

Who could reach that soaring mind?

A dauntless bird with pretty eyes

How high it was and so lonely too

We thought we knew but never knew

 

I think it was a relief indeed

Cause at least it can now rest a bit

Far from prying eyes that judge

In higher company, so sought within

 

Be happy and safe, my little one

You need this break and I know this now

Wherever you are you are singing still

To higher life, to deeper feel
