Poignant, quiet, haunting
4 part modal round. The last line ‘are here to say goodbye’ works beautifully as a repeated line while the tune is sung above it.
And here we lay this friend of ours
Who loved the earth and loved the sky
And we who shared her earthly days
Are here to say good-bye, are here to say good-bye
