The love you gave, I felt alive,
Showing a way for hopes to thrive;
Can someone ever take your place?
My joyous heart, that with you stays; can they revive?
Time to say goodbye, tears in vain,
One last time under heaven’s rain;
No one can find your eyes but me,
Of earthly bonds you now are free; with God again.
