Silence claimed its place in the day, as your time here slowly fades away. Tears of sadness weighs heavily in our hearts, as the essence of life rise and sets your Soul to part. You surrender to the lighted path beyond, to finally meet Yin to complete Yang.
The Sun, slowly bows to end the day and the crickets set their music in play. The Night air whisper to the sky, bring out the brightest stars and push the clouds aside. Let this gentle soul ascend to the heavens, to finally be with the Love of his Life.
