I sit here in complete silence,
Why does life get harder?
Maybe we’re not supposed to understand
Life’s meaning, but a friend is forever, life is short.
Why do we always rejoice when someone passes?
But, everyone cries when a baby is born?
Why, Lord, can’t I find the answers to these questions?
Am I selfish to think life is supposed to be this way?
I know life holds a certain purpose,
Lord, please help me find these answers?
In my heart’s secret chamber,
Each of you live on…
Your memories I shall hold forever.
Why do I feel so guilty?
I haven’t said goodbye.
Even though I can feel my pain,
I can’t express how I feel.
My heart weeps in grievous sorrow,
Tears flow like spring rains.
I close my eyes at night,
I want to cry.
My heart just aches,
Why did you have to go?
Now I stand alone,
Just your memory lingers on.
Never again will I feel your
Hand on my shoulder or look across the room
To feel the security of just knowing you were there.
How I miss your smile
And the laughter in your eyes
There was an empty place
At Heaven’s table,
God called you home one-by-one.
Like leaves on a tree
Our days are numbered.
From the budding of life in spring,
To the quiet solace of winter’s first snow,
Some day when at last my journey is over
I will rejoin you all in a place
Of eternal peace and rest.
Until that day stay with me
My beloved friends,
I shall cherish your memories
And keep you close in my heart
