"Death is not the greatest loss, the greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live."


As the angels light the match, slowly now eternal its feeds

Still I reach for convalescence, is this the payment for my deeds?

Never surrender my anonymous soul, resistance is my only creed

As I pass into the void, sing my sweet threnody

Here remain the struggles, the pieces of what was me

With woe in the open air, now a bittersweet memory

All will fade into the dark, now divine you can see

Darkness shrouds my lambent star, this is my threnody...?
