From the silence of your pain I heard my name
       and on the wings of light I have come
              to see the sadness in your eyes
                     that cry without tears

Can you see me, I am here
       I will always be near you
              to calm your shattered heart
                     and to make you smile at the memories

Do you feel me, perhaps a soft brush of fur
       You ache to believe it's real
              but you are afraid to hope
                     You brush away a strand of hair
                            But it was I, whispering.....

I am only here for but a moment
       The silver thread gently quivers
              I will leave behind my love in a dream
                     When you awaken, and without really knowing why

Your heart will know at last
           That it is all right, for now
                     to say good-bye
