The clock strikes twilight in the chapel.
She lies on the floor with outstretched hands
weeping in silence, in pain
the pain of leaving this place
her home of five joyous blessed years.
She closes her eyes...
listening to the Lord's voice in her heart.
'Shalom, my daughter
I love you so much
but I know deep within you
you want to be with him
you want to share your life with him.'
'In a special corner in your heart
let me in, let me love you more
I am always with you 'till the end
I will never leave you
my peace be with you! '
The nuns start to pray and sing
glorious songs of Hallelujah to the Lord.
One by one she hands over
the veil, her habit
for five years
her symbol, her vow to serve Him faithfully.
At the choir loft children sing with tight voices
she knows there are tears, she knows
she can't contain her emotions anymore.
She cries and cries
as they sing, 'farewell dear sister, farewell'.
Passing by the corridor she sees
lovely flowers bursting blooms
gifts wrapped in ribbons of love
books touched by their smiles
and one smudged by a teardrop
neatly arranged on her working table
this, another heart warming episode.
She cannot take it anymore.
Hurriedly she goes outside
the bright moonlight seems to light her way
another chapter of her life begins...
