a human formed of visions
a gentle spirit
a pure gift
to an ugly
undeserving world

no way to soften
the inner pain
no answer to the quest
for answers
or even just silence

so finally
a choice
a fare thee well
a goodbye

even knowing
there is so much to miss
so much that matters
and yet
too weary
too worn
to cling any longer

in your sleep
dearly loved soul
friend of so many
warm, gentle lover of Christ
who drew music like birdsong
out of thinnest air
in the sleep you chose
because you could see no other
in that rest
i pray you are quiet
understood by the sweet earth
which knows you best
serenaded by angels
who learned sweeter melodies
from your life song
and left
at last
just to be at peace
