Chakaluka, you arrived with the change of the winds.
You were a glorious sight with splendid fluttering wings.
Too brief was your stay,
but we were blessed that you passed our way.
Chakaluka, embrace and kiss us once again.
I wish our time together never had an end.
Life was bright and full when you came.
I am changed forever and will never be the same.
Your days were full and overflowing,
leaving all around you more alive and glowing,
but alas the winds are ever blowing.
Chakaluka, too ethereal and beautiful were you,
this truth the angels knew,
they longed to be once again with you and so we bid adieu.
I wish you could have stayed,
but had no voice and can only now say,
I love you.
My heart will forever call your name.
