Born, Still As Light

Born, Still, as Light
Still, still as a fallen bird
your beauty just as new
as the moment God created you.

Angels, too, have wings to fly;
God needs you now to fly with Him
and left me here to weep
for you in your silent sleep.

This life is hard,
God spared you pain.
I kept you warm
as long as you lived.

Still, still your beating heart
still as my dying heart
you flew away as a butterfly.
I have no answers, still.

Never will I say good-bye
but, until we meet again
