Feel no guilt in laughter,
I know how much you care. Feel no sorrow in a smile,
that I’m not here to share. For I will be beside you,
as sure as comes tomorrow. My body has gone
but my spirit lives on,
as does my love for you.
Just as in life. I'll watch over you.
My dear loving family, I gave you my love,
and you can only guess How much you gave me my true
happiness. My blood lives on in my children and
how I've watched them grow up with
pride. I'll live on within them,
always by their side.
To all who knew me, let memories surround you.
The days we spent together, all the happiness we shared. A word someone may say, will suddenly recapture
a time, an hour, a day That brings me back, as clearly as though I were still here.
Reach out if you need me, for I will always be near. Just talk to me, as if I am there, I promise I will hear. Though you can't see or touch me, I'll be near. And if you listen with your heart, you'll hear.
For I'll live on, within your mind, we'll never be apart, As long as you keep my memory, deep within your heart.
All of my love around you, soft and dear. And then, when you must come this way alone I'll greet you with a smile and say "Welcome Home."
