So it's finally come, you have left this world
But we'll miss our Kate, our darling girl
We held your head, kissed your lovely brow
And bid farewell, you're sailing now

Free from the pain, you lay that burden down
But you're strong and giving heart
Would surely be your crown

As you slip the surly bonds of earth and sailed way
Perhaps we will meet again somehow, someday
Until then, there's nothing we can do but wait
To see once more, our darling Kate

All those nights we sang, talked 'till the sun come up
You fed our souls, you filled our cup
With your perfect words and all 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 betting there's a better song
We've all known down here, taste of joy and strife
You were the sweetest note in the chord of life

Now you slipped the surly bonds of earth and sailed way
Perhaps we will meet again somehow, someday
But if there was one name I could consecrate
It would be yours, it would be Kate
