"Portals Of Light" as written by and Stefan Weinerhall....
I sit here by your side
And weep you goodbye,
I'm singing songs of sorrow for you
True gentle rose of mine.
Upon my arm I've tied a ribbon in black
Although I know too well that this
Will not ever bring you back.

I feel so astray inside
As I know you're far away.
Let my love shine and be your guide
On your way towards the portals of light.

A lonely candle burns for you my only love,
Meanwhile you roam the clouds among
Heaven's angels high above.
What is there left to live for
As you've gone away?
Hope's lost forevermore,
I'll mourn you 'till the end of days.

Hear, my love,
Hear my cry of deepest grief
As I weep for you eternally.
Praying for your soul
And for light and for relief
As I shed your tears of misery.

    General CommentYou can just visualize him singing this while sitting in a hospital room as he's watched his true love slip away from him.. He's obviously in mourning and hoping she has contentment after death (Portals of Light, meaning heaven's gates?). He also ponders what's in store for his own life after she's gone and how he'll ever find a sense of hope again.

    What a beautiful song..
