DEATH

Big blue jay died in the honeysuckle bush from old age
Restin on the branches doesn’t hear me anymore
Callin’ it by name, blue jay

Strong brown hare jumped in the old waterin’ well for a drink
Floatin’ on the top now, she picks him up and lays him down to rest
Callin’ it by name, brown hare

Thank you for your time with us, full of victory and love
Shapin’ the world around us
I’m sure we didn’t make it easy for you just to be

Five lavender chicks getting used to your new feed, scratch and pick
Scattered in the field now, I saved a feather to remember
Callin’ you by name, lavender chicks

Friendly horse, you’ve been around since I was born, you took a fall
Layin’ on your side now one last hug around your neck
Callin’ you by name, friendly horse

Thank you for your time with us, full of victory and love
Shapin’ the world around us
I’m sure we didn’t make it easy for you just to be

Monarch butterfly made a home on our porch never to come out
Swayin’ in the breeze, forever wrapped inside its wings

Thank you for your time with us, full of victory and love
Shapin’ the world around us
I’m sure we didn’t make it easy for you just to be
But you’ll live on in memory
Until we forget
And we do it all again

Big blue jay died in the honeysuckle bush
