For Tony
Go softly into the night my love
Your last karanga has rung out,
The ancestors are calling,go be with them
The whare is quiet now and no birds sing,
But the river still runs and in its song I hear your voice
Go now to Te Tai Hua where skylarks call above
Go softly
Go in peace
Go my love.
By Anne
