Love Lives On
Those we love remain with us, for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade, because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart,
For as long as there’s a memory, they live on in our heart.
Think of him as living in the hearts of those he touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost, and he was loved so much.
