"Cosmic Love" as written by Florence Leontine Mary Welch and Isabella Janet Florentina Summers....
A falling star fell from your heart and landed in my eyes
I screamed aloud, as it tore through them, and now it's left me blind

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat
I tried to find the sound
But then it stopped, and I was in the darkness,
So darkness I became

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

I took the stars from our eyes, and then I made a map
And knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too
So I stayed in the darkness with you

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out
You left me in the dark
No dawn, no day, I'm always in this twilight
In the shadow of your heart

    MemoryI don't know what this song means to Florence, but to me it has brought back the experience and feelings as I sat next to my father while he was dying, and the many feelings I have now that he is gone. I feel that I have begun to make a map to recovery from my grief during the past six weeks, but sometimes, I want to stay with him, in the darkness of his passing and my belief that his presence is still with me somehow.
