Looking at the last things lovely,
When time draws near,
It’s your touch that I feel
And your voice that I hear.
A sweet pain invades my heart
And numbness for a while,
I seize those pearls from my eyes
And gather them to a smile.
We look far from here, together,
Time has come and gone
But the loveliest words are left unsaid
And the sweetest deeds undone.
