A limb has fallen from Our Family Tree
I hear a voice that whispers, “Grieve not for me”
Remember the best times, the laughter, the songs
The good I lived while I was strong
Continue my heritage, I’m counting on you
Keep on smiling the sun will shine through
My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest
Remembering all…how I was truly blessed.
Continue traditions, no matter how small
Go on with your lives, don’t stare at the wall
I miss you all dearly so keep up your chin
Until that fine day we’re together again.
