"Not only is another world possible, she is on her way. On a quiet day, I can hear her breathing."


The sad song of the dying-

Is not quite a song at all
It’s the rasping of their breathe-

As their chest begins to fall…

The sad song of the dying-

Is quite a sight indeed
The bright eyes, the subtle wisp-

As their soul is being freed…

The sad song of the dying-

The surly, poignant tide
Of life that pulls the heartfelt tear

For the brave one that has died…
