When a loved one passes away

You know their spirit is here to stay

Forever, always in our hearts

Even though they are far apart

We must cope with the hurt and pain

Although things will not be the same

Those days you shed the laughter and tears

The memories you have throughout the years

Remembering the all the times you've shared

The times you have loved and cared

Knowing they are in a better place

Gives a warm feeling and smile on your face

As their body lays down to sleep

Their soul is lifted to heaven's keep…….
