Time has stopped
The clocks have sounded
Their very last toll.
Tears are rolling,
Regrets are struggling
In our heads.
Wrapped in gentleness and peace,
You’re flying to undying lands
Wherever that might be
They’re waiting for you there with open arms.
But for us, who had already lost you
Earlier than your final hour
And even if we know your sufferings to be over
Your absence is so much more painful
Now that it is definit and irrevocable
And in our hearts you will live on
Immortal in our memory,
Selfishly, we’ll keep you there
