When you loose a loved one,
When within your heart it’s breaking,
When you feel the emptiness inside,
When your whole body is aching,
Not knowing how to express the torment,
When a loved one passes away,
Feeling the hurt and all the emotions,
That you are experiencing day after day.
Asking self difficult questions why,
Why is this happening to me?
No getting all the right answers,
Wanting the pain to go, to set you free
It was then I remembered these words,
My loved one once said to me,
If I should die before my time,
In your heart I will always be.
For excepting the loss of a loved one,
In time will stand you in good stead?
Remember I will always be with you,
For in Heaven I am alive not dead.
I will always be around you,
When the tears are in your eyes,
And remember my darling
That our love never dies.
