She closed her eyes and felt the rushing air,
The whispered secrets of her ebbing tide.
Angelic fingers gently brushed her hair.
Her errant spirit fled, her body died.

Now what majestic visions fill her view,
What brilliant stars to light her on her way.
Her soul set free, in lofty spiral flew
Leaving behind a useless hulk of clay.

Winging her way across celestial heights,
Traveling onwards in a heavenly sea,
Marveling at the wonder of such sights,
She claims her portion of Eternity.
