Promise you will talk to me while I am dying,
Talk of when we were young & we held hands,
Smile on me, soft flowers & sweet summer suns,
Weep me, the happy tears of bright saline stars,
Kiss me moon-beams, upon my frozen lips of ice,
Whilst waxing lyrical, in the last hour of my ebbing,
And as I wane, please sing me songs of Gaelic birds,
So that I may waft gently upon your sweet breath,
To my heaven´s bed of swan´s downy soft feathers,
Please talk to me of these things while I am dying,
For I know, upon your spoken tongue I feel no fear.
