A face that is always on our mind,
A smile we have seen a million times,
Two eyes that would light up the sky at night,
One last battle you could not fight.
The day was long, then night then morn,
We knew that soon you would be gone,
We clasped your hand so warm in mine,
Soon we would be out of time.
To stay with us you fought so hard,
A million pieces broke in our hearts,
Now a photo we look at to see your smile,
We keep your number on our speed dial.
A video we watch to hear your voice,
This we do ... we have no choice,
But great memories we will always keep with us,
Your love in our heart for eternity,
Waiting in heaven from this moment on,
Till god asks you to bring us home ...
