In Memory Of...

Just a prayer from those who loved you,
Just a memory, fond and true;
In our heart you'll live forever,
Because we thought the world of you.
It broke our heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone;
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.
A million times we miss you,
A million tears we've cried;
If love could have saved you,
You never would have died.
A smile for all, a heart of gold
One of the best, this world could hold,
Deep in our hearts you will always stay,
Loved and remembered every day.

In tears we saw you sinking
And watched you fade away
Our hearts were almost broken
We wanted you to stay
But when we saw you sleeping
So peaceful, free from pain
How could we wish you back with us
To suffer that again
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God took you home.
