Whence left, have I, this mortal realm

Shed not a tear for me

For mouldering ikn this stagnant earth,

I shall be released

Fear not my passing, nor my ghost

Fear not the deathly breeze

The echoes of my parting words

That whisper through the trees

Macabre bouquets, lay not at my grave

Giveth me no marker

No standing stone to guard my bones

Forget me, Ever after

Anonymity, thou shalt giveth me

My words, become the wind

Returned once more from whence I came

From whence it all began

When left have I, this mortal realm

Shed not a tear for me.......
