His most devout worshiper on his bed
waiting for the gentle arms of death to
carry Johann away to meet his deity.
His eyesight long gone but his hearing
remained as good as it was when He had
bestowed it upon the father whose child sat
at the organ, playing a partita.
Johann groaned in pain and right before the
end, his son stopped to tend to his father.
The father heard and could not bear his
unfinished Melody. On the verge of
a stroke, Johann woke and hobbled to the
Organ, sat and finished his last tribute
to Him, as His tears fell from the sky.
Then, with a sigh of satisfaction,
knowing that he had pleased his creator,
his God, the court composer lay and with
a final sigh, he smiled and closed his eyes.
His Lord had recalled his Angel to his world.
