In the stars I see your stare

Perfect in its form

Soft in its strength — warm

A beauty such as this is rare

From its gaze I cannot break

All else to it I forsake

Your voice so sweet

And soft to the sound

Lifting me slowly from the ground

The sound can make my day complete

And your laugh is intoxicating

Like angels a choir in waiting

From you now I must flee

Leaving in presence alone

In the heart always I will be prone

Always close to thee

Now I say goodbye

My body, heart and soul do cry.
