Soprano woven beauty
spun on
magic emerged
round and round
over and over

Sang to me
a lullabye
offering childish joy
and comfort

How was I to know
it was a portent
a promise that hailed
far into the future?

And now backward
beauty reaches
past reminder
future lost
but grace discovered
in farewell
sung for you
