“Who will sing my song when I am silent?”
“Who will count the colors of the dawn?”
“Who will follow the Larks flight?
“Who will hear its song?”
“When I am silent”
Varner is asking, who will take this girls spot in life? She has passed, who will fill her place? No person can ever fill a person who has died, he is asking who will do what she once did, but cannot now. Who will make the world a better place?
