"Always In Your Heart"
Picture me as I was full of life and love,
Although not with you now, I'm watching from above.
I know how much you miss me, and I miss you, too,
but it was my time to leave as each of us will do.
Although I'm not here with you, I'm always in your heart.
The precious love we shared means we're never far apart.
