In tears we say you sinking and watched you fade away, Our hearts were almost broken, we wanted you to stay. But, when we saw you sleeping so peaceful and free from pain, How could we wish you back with us, to suffer that again. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you did not go alone, For part of us went with you, the day God took you home.
