Eyes fluttered and closed.
Loosely the hands gentled to lay still.
Pain flowed out and drifted into nothing to be felt no more.
The end came and with it the beginning.
Stars leaned close and flickers of wings tipped the sky.
Singing came forth and rejoicing poured in.
A child coming home.
A child dancing home.
A child welcomed home.
Rest for the weary.
Tears no more felt and grief washed away.
A Shepherd gathering in His lamb and going home.
