You left on a Saturday

In her hands you passed away

On seashores we laughed and played

Only months ago

And I know you tried so hard

To heal the space between our hearts

And now your work is done

For your daughters and sons

Swing low to the ground

For we have lost our father’s crown

Hallowed was the night

When the veil was torn

And your spirit took flight

From the world

We gathered the sticks and leaves

To set aflame our memories

Your family gathered around

To lay your ashes down

Sing treetops and clap your hands

For the grace in this sorrowful plan

That night when one candle remained

We whispered your name

Swing low to the ground

For we have lost our father’s crown

Hallowed was the night

When the veil was torn

And your spirit took flight

From the world
