“Forever in Your Heart”
Fill not your hearts with pain and sorrow
But remember me in every tomorrow
Remember the love we shared and the smiles,
I’ve only gone to rest awhile
Although my leaving causes pain and grief,
My going has eased my hurt and given me relief.
As long as my love is in each of you,
I live not only in your memories
But in your hearts and all I do.
