1. A special smile,
a special face,
and in our hearts,
a special place.
2. A face I love is missing,
a voice I love is still,
a place is vacant in my heart,
that no one else can fill.
3. Beautiful memories woven in gold,
this is the picture we tenderly hold,
deep in our hearts your memory is kept,
to love, cherish and never forget.
4. Out of this world of suffering,
into God’s garden of rest,
it must be a beautiful garden,
because He always takes the best.
5. Tired and weary you made no fuss,
you tried so hard to stay with us,
you suffered so much and told so few,
you never deserved what you went through.
Close to my/our heart(s) you will always stay,
loved and remembered every day.
6. With tears we saw you suffer,
We watched you fade away,
Our hearts were slowly breaking,
As you fought so hard to stay.
You did not want to leave us,
But you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you,
The day God took you home…
