					Passing of the Matriarch
By Craig Stellpflug ©Copyright 2009 all rights reserved
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust And back to the earth we are thrust A baby’s born, a woman dies And at her death her daughter cries In silence they watch her embark At the passing of the matriarch Life is simple and life is vain To live is Christ to die is gain Her husband and her sons do weep Memories are what they keep They gather ‘round the fading spark At the passing of the matriarch Oh hear the wisdom of the sage While countless lifelong battles rage The friends that gathered did lament And all their prayers to heaven sent There was ne’er heard a bad remark At the passing of the matriarch They say life is for the living To be kind and strong, forgiving Her brothers and her sisters wail As the life-light in her eyes doth fail The days are bright, the night is dark At the passing of the matriarch Of all the things that you accrue Be known by love and what is true Standing so near her parents sigh As the very last breath draws nigh The preacher says a soft remark At the passing of the matriarch
