You’ve turned your face to the sun to sleep,
But you’ll live in my heart and never die.
The memories you bequeathed will stay with me.
Though the years have vanished, this isn’t goodbye.
With eyes as bright as sunlight on a stream,
You come to me in the silence of the night.
In my dreams, I feel the touch of your hand
And the warmth of you holding me tight.
Consoled by the gift of your love and shining light,
I’ll forever cherish the laughter, tears and singing.
But it’s in dying that one is born to eternal life;
To lay down a new path and beginning.
