Missing You Always,
You never said
You never said goodbye.
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still.
In our heart we hold a place
That only you can fill.
It broke our heart to lose you
But you didn't go alone.
A part of us went with you
The day God took you home.
Forever and Always,
Your Loving Family
