- Short -
As each night falls, we pray for you.
And throughout our lives, no matter where;
In our hearts you are always there.
No winter without a spring,
And beyond the dark horizon,
Our hearts will once more sing.
For those who leave us for a while,
Have only gone away,
Out of a restless, care worn world,
Into a brighter day.
Your love for your family true,
You did your best for all of us,
We will always remember you.
How much we miss her can never be told.
In our thoughts forever
My soul is overwhelmed with joy,
I am watching over you from on High.
Though sad your heart may be.
There’s always another horizon
Beyond the one you see.
No matter what we do,
A special place within our hearts,
Is always kept for you.
Father’s waiting too.
Lots of folk gathered there,
All the friends I knew.
And there you shall remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.
the tranquillity of the mind
And the simplicity of the heart.
But rejoicing comes in the memory.
Let us not forget him in death.
As you danced in the light with joy, love lifted you. As you brushed against this world so gently, you lifted us.
A gift for such a little while,
Your loss just seems so wrong,
You should not have left before us,
It’s with loved ones you belong.
A garden of the heart.
He planted all good things,
That gave our lives a start.
She never could forget,
And so I think that where she is,
She must be watching yet.
Sweet memories cling to her name.
Those who loved her in life sincerely
Still love her in death just the same.
We cherish our whole life through;
But the sweetness will live forever
As we treasure the memory of you.
Although we are apart,
Your spirit lives within me,
Forever in my heart.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
Time rolls on, but memories last;
Sunshine passes, shadows fall,
Love’s remembrance outlasts all.
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom filled room,
Why cry for a soul set free?
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.
It would never be goodbye,
For I have left my heart with you,
So don’t you ever cry.
But this they’ll wipe out never,
The memory of those happy days,
Which we have spent together
For love itself lives on,
And cherished memories never,
Fade because a loved one’s gone.
The day we said goodbye,
And on that day a star was born,
The brightest in the sky
And though we seem apart,
I’m closer than I ever was,
I’m there inside your heart.
In our memory you are near.
Loved, remembered, longed for always,
Bringing many a silent tear.
To share a laugh or two,
And if a tear should start to fall,
I’ll still be there for you.
Then let your grief be comforted by trust.
It is only for a while that we must part,
So treasure the memories within your heart.
