Softly, Swiftly, Soon-ly

Oh, whisper of the wind
Oh, silver of a sigh
Oh, quiver of a moment
Softly you fill the sky

Oh, tempest of a tear
Oh, divine doggerel
Swiftly you fill another year
With echoing farewell

Oh, sparkle of the sun
Oh, banter of the breeze
Soon-ly you fill the heart of hearts
With precious memories

Oh, flicker of a life
Oh, tiptoe to a Door
Softly, swiftly and soon-ly
You will fill for-never-more
