I light three candles for you...

I light three candles for you,

One for every year since you’ve passed...

I treasure the moments that we had

And the time that we spent

Together. Forever. Grand dad and daughter.

I remember the last time we saw each other,

Three Christmas’s ago; you hugged me and it felt like

You’d never let me go, like you’ll never leave

Because the love we shared and the blood bond we had,

Was too strong...

But then that moment came...

Death knocked at your door and stole you away

And just like that,

Gone.

Oh how you are greatly missed!.

So, I light three candles for you,

One for every year since you’ve passed

And for every year that soon we shall be together again...

In Paradise, Heaven, in one accord, together, praising the Lord,

Amen.
