Beautiful death

Just a shadow of your temple here
Time a witness as you disappear
Lying still beneath the whiteness now
Dreaming rest is seeking you somehow
Go and meet your beautiful death

Rugged road so long, almost behind
Strength of body gone though not of mind
Seeing those who here have loved you well
Sweetly bitter goodbyes lips shall tell
Before you meet your beautiful death

Where is Lovely's place in all of this?
Death move softly, gently as a kiss
Invited by the one brave all along
Peaceful as we sing your final song
While you meet your beautiful death

Hold your hand - eyes closed in dreamless sleep
Left me here - over you I will weep
Heart of joy for what awaits you now
Selfish sorrow I cannot allow
For you've met your beautiful death
