HEAVEN now thy vital toil has stayed,
Thy last faint pulsing tender stilled,
Lifting - to prove thy task fulfilled -
The load of pain upon thee laid.
0 fair young Heart so swiftly gone -
0 throbbing Life in sweet release,
Passing through griefs to longed-for peace -
Thy beating vibrant lingers on!
Thy chords yet sounding none may sever -
Their impulse blends bereaved heart's striving,
In resonance of love surviving -
In living unison forever!
