First Line: Draw the shades across the window
Last Line: For a heart has died today.
Subject(s): Bible; Mythology; Silence


Draw the shades across the window --
Place a wreath of flowers by.
Let there be no sound to mar it,
If a lovely thing must die.

Quiet -- in the endless gloaming --
Let no worldly breath invade.
Time may heal the ache a little,
Memories, like flowers, fade.

Only let the scene be holy --
In the darkness kneel and pray;
Silently --, a prayer of sorrow,
For a heart has died today.
