You left but didn't close the door.
And so we wanted to have more.
But what we got was less of you,
the one we loved, the one we knew.
This bid farewell has lasted years.
So yes, it's sad and we've shed tears.
But now at last you've gone to rest,
and found your peace. It's for the best.
In heaven, it's a brand new day.
There is no more fog to block the way.
You're once again all that you were,
and in the light - of that we're sure.
Though gone, you're with us everyday.
You're in our hearts, and there you'll stay.
For no disease or death can still,
what love recalls and always will.
