And not so many years;
That we first met and fell in love,
Now time is marked by tears.
For on the gentle whisper,
Of an angel of your own;
You winged your way toward Heaven,
And now it is your home.
While here my heart is grieving,
The memories remain;
In the love that is our family,
Our loss is Heaven's gain.
My joy was in the love we shared,
It was all things pure and true;
I will keep your light a memory,
In the love that will always be you.
