Lyrics for A Final Farewell
A Final Farewell
in memory of Eugenio Del Duca
There’ll be no last act to this play
The leading man was pulled away
No curtain calls or bows
Are to him to be allowed.
Vanished like a reverie
There’s one less star which shines on me
My spring songs fade to elegies
Drowned by such senseless tragedies.
Ripples on water and droplets of rain
Like gentle moments fleet away
In their stead swells a numbing river of pain
Which engulfs us until our last day.
Death has a horrible finality
Stealing beloved ones from life and me.
Denied a last embrace of hands
I guess fate had other plans
So on the wings of an angel
I send this final farewell
To the place where your spirit now dwells.
