Don’t think of her gone away,
Her journey has just begun,
Life holds so many facets,
This earth is only one,
Just think of her at rest,
From sorrow and the tears,
In a place of warmth and comfort,
Where there are no days and years,
And think of her living,
In the heart of those she touched,
For nothing loved is ever lost,
And she was loved so much!
