The coffin’s here, I’m leaving today,
Goodbyes are said, I’m on my way…
The priest is here, the car is waiting downstairs,
My crypt is ready, for my stay.
The sun is warm, on my skin so cold now,
The dusk is nearing, the passing of a storm.
Everyone’s been weeping for far too long,
Its time for closure, time for moving on…
I see you huddled, in the corner of our house,
I hear your tears, as they fall like pearls to the ground.
Time for me, has been frozen since today’s dawn,
If granted one wish, I’d ask for it to be turned around.
I saw you in a dream, and you walked into my life,
And I found everything, answers to all my strife.
My life with you was as beautiful as a song,
My heart itches to beat, to the rhythm of your sound.
The car is stopping; I am being carried out,
My resting place, I hear it beckoning me on…
I’m finally heading home, but don’t let go,
Hold me to your heart, forever hold me close.
Like the sun, the living world slips out of my reach,
It is a place, a life, I can never again breach.
The living souls must walk on, as must the dead,
The eternal sleep awaiting me is on a lonely bed…
The rays are feeble, the warm light has gone,
The twilight’s slipping in, as you lower me down.
Like the moon, darkness enshrouds me now,
I’m going to miss you, miss all we had, and every vow.
Lean to me, let me breathe you my goodbye kiss,
This is my farewell, my love, my darling dearest.
