In this life,

We see what we choose to see.

Believe what we want to believe.

But the reality is,

Not all is what it seems.

Cherish the life you have, 

And remind loved ones that,

You are near.

Don't part because of sorrow,

Pull closer for tomorrow.

Life is too short to grudge,

Hold on for the ones you love. 

I rest your name in peace,

For each day I shall not grieve.

But remember all the cheer,

And know that you are near.

With me every day,

Beside our Lord I pray.

I love you oh so dear,

I no longer live in fear.
