Our existence goes on without you and nothing is the same,
We have to hide our heartache when someone speaks your name,
Sad is the heart that loves you, Silent the tears that fall,
Living our lives without you is the hardest part of all.

You did everything for us,
Your heart & soul was kind & true,
and when we needed someone we could always count on you.

The special years will not return, when we were together,
But with the love within our heart, you will walk with us forever.

We did not get a chance to say “Goodbye”,
But you did not leave alone a part of each of us went with you.
