In tears we saw you sinking,
and watched you fade away
Our hearts were really broken,
because we wanted you to stay.
But when we saw you sleeping,
so peacefully and free from pain,
How could you wish us back with us
To suffer that again.
It breaks our hearts to lose you
But you do not go alone,
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
Submitted with love,
by the Family
