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 we wish you back with us, to suffer that again.
It breaks our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone.
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home!
Submitted with love,
– The Family
