Watch me closely while I'm near,
I will soon be gone.
Like a star will disappear
With the light of dawn.

Like a quiet summer breeze
I will blow away.
You'll just hear the echo cease
Whispering my name.

You'll forget what I looked like
What I sought or feared,
But sometimes a thought will strike:
«Something's missing here».

Something small, but something dear,

Though it's been so long…

Something used to be so near,

Now forever gone.
