It’s time for this spirit to leave
No time for you to sit and grieve

A soul too soft its pain to bear

Soon to leave this hemisphere

Is death not the open door - free of pain?

Through which we pass to life again

Keep in line with mine eye

And stay with me till dawn is nigh

We do have but a little while.

So let me see that lovely smile!

If only you could see how truly you
Breathe life into these lungs and my soul too!

I wonder what my final thought will be
What sight will be my eyes last see?

When life’s light turns to endless night

With your eyes no longer in my sight
And death’s calm soothes to end the storm

One last happy smile on my lips will form

For as the sun illumes the eastern skies

I’ll pass through Glory’s gate and walk in Paradise!
