There came to visit me a flutterling,
with one dark and one iridescent wing.
It came to me well in advance,
signalling the end of my dance.
A high note of hope did it sing,
news of my passing over did it bring.
My time here it has been served,
it told me not at all unnerved.
Shall I smiile now or shall I weep,
as at last I lay me down to sleep?
Best not to keep it waiting long,
while I sing my farewell song.
I’ll wait for you on th’other side,
arms spead in welcome open wide.
To be reunited there for evermore,
both our souls up high will soar!
