So it's finally come, You have left this world, But we'll miss our Kate, Our darling girl! We held your hand, Kissed your lovely brow, And bid farewell You're sailing now Free from the pain You laid that burden down, But you're strong and giving heart, Will surely be your crown As you slip the surly bonds of earth And sail away Perhaps we will meet again Somehow, some day Until then, there's nothing we can do but wait, To see once more, Our darling Kate All those nights we sang And talked 'til the sun come up, You fed our souls, You filled our cup With your perfect words And oh that voice, We fell in love, We had no choice. And I can't say For sure where you have gone, But in that place I'm bettin' there's a better song For we've all known down here, The taste of joy and strife You were the sweetest note In the chord of life. Now you've slipped the surly bonds of earth, And sailed away Perhaps we will meet again Somehow, some day But if there was one name I could consecrate It would be yours It would be Kate
