When days are sad and lonely,
And everything goes wrong.
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and Carry on”.

Every time we see your picture,
You smile and seem to say,
“Don’t cry, I am only sleeping
We’ll meet again someday.”

You gave no one a last farewell,
Nor even said good-bye.
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.

A million times we’ve missed you
A million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.

In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else can ever fill.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
