Like a thief in the night

Yes, just like a thief in the night

Death came and someone from the parish has left us

The funeral will soon be held

The  name? Lucy!

One comes, one goes

Each one has its own timing

And each timing is good

Today I heard that an old friend is seriously ill

I went to check it out

Lin is her name

But no, the name could not be detected

I had gone to visit another at the hospice

And thought I would just drop in

There may be business yet to be settled

Who knows

Still death prowls like an unwanted thief

Coming on stealthy feet

And ah, here it is!

Like a thief in the night, in the night
