Hush now little bird,
Ease away, depart, be gone,
This world no longer needs your sorrow song.
Your fire was darkened by this crushing world.
Let your eyes begin to droop
Let all your worry fade
Let go, go limp in my arms.
I’ll lift this final burden from your shedding shoulders.
All your life you lose heart to everyone you love
Once you’ve given it all, you give yourself to the light.
You offered your love too quickly
So breathe in your last breathes.
Don’t stain your bright colours with tears,
Release your fears,
Release your wings
I’ll guard your journey onwards.
