Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm | Farewell Friend (84)

Take with you our smiles and laughter
Your love stays now and ever after
Your compassion a gift un-end
This moment I farewell you friend.

Today the sky was swarming blue

Seven days since God summoned you

Angels high herald Him nearing

The crowd saw you disappearing

Nigh you are earthly no longer

Love ones silence sorrow thither

Procession procession unfolds

More more hollow hearts ever whole

Take with you our smiles and laughter

Your love stays now and ever after

Your compassion a gift un-end

This moment I farewell you friend.
