Go Gently

Go gently into the heavenly skies;

Dance freely and spread your light.

Warm me with the embrace of your wings,

From the morning twilight ’til night.

Whisper from one soul to another;

Call out to my heart with love.

Forsaken I shall never be,

As you watch over me from above.

Eternally I’ll feel your spirit around me,

And picture you in my dreams contently.

Be amongst the beauty of the stars;

Go gently in peace, go gently.
