Into the West by April Dalphne

She follows the road further on into the West.
The woes she gladly leaves behind,
Abandoning only the miseries of the hard-fought life.
There in the Blessed Realm, she is carefree once again.
There where the old ones rock away eternity,
There where the young who left this earth much too early find long-sought peace,
And there where the little ones who never knew another existence welcome her home.
