So death is out

walking our streets again,

don’t follow him to see where he goes,

don’t catch his eye or touch his clothes,

just look away and let him by

and pay your respect with a silent sigh.

Know that in time your heart will soften,

you’ll recall the person, not the coffin,

and in their place new hope will rise,

it’s always the way when a loved one dies.
