A smile for all, a heart of gold,
one of the finest this world could hold
Never selfish, always kind,
these are the memories he leaves behind…

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see,
if the sun should rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today,
while thinking of the many things, we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
and each time that you think of me, I know you'll miss me too;
so when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your hearts.
