A time of remorse
A sad, sad day
Feelings come out
You've been keeping at bay
 
The final journey
The last day out
Family and friends
Have one unanimous shout
 
We miss you, you're gone
You remain in our hearts
You may pass from our thoughts
But your memory lasts
 
You live on through us 
And the lessons you taught
We pass on your wisdom
When our opinions are saught
 
We may not remember
From where that wisdom came
But looking down
You don't allocate blame
 
The fact we took notice
Absorbed your words
Is enough to ensure
Your past is observed
 
The lessons you learned 
Passed on when you could
Have helped countless others
Just like they should
 
You knew so much
Always knew best
Never seemed wrong
Illogical at best
 
You may well be gone 
But never forgot 
We keep you alive 
If we knew you or not
