You only cast off the mortal shell
Wherein your inner reality did dwell
You were, you are and forever will remain
United with us in the spiritual domain.
The flame you lit still burns bright in our hearts
What a beautiful memory to leave behind.
We saw you fade like a flower
But could not make you stay, dear;
The tears in our eyes we can wipe away
But the ache in our hearts ever stay.
God took you to His tender care
This for us is hard to bear.
Your gentle face and twinkling eye
In our memory will never die.
As time enfolds another year
Loving memories keep you near.
Your presence once our great pleasure
Your memory now our great treasure.
The tears can be wiped away
But the pains in our hearts will ever stay.
Time heals the grief but memory keeps haunting.
God closed your eyes to ease your pain
To wish you back would be in vain.
Always gentle, loving and kind
What beautiful memories you left behind.
