When I Must Leave You
When I must leave you for a little while, please do not grieve and shed many tears,
And hug your sorrow to you through the years.
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name, live on and do all things the same.
Feed not your loneliness on empty days, but fill each waking hour in useful ways.
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer, and
I in turn will comfort you and hold you near.
And never, never be afraid to die, for I am waiting for you in the sky!

Reflections
We’ll Always Love You Dad
Each day you strive to live, Hard days may be before us,
Your body too weak to be, It’s all apart of God’s plan,
Your love will forever, Why you left so soon,
Since your heart has set you free. We may never understand.

Now you walk so bravely, You’ll be alone no longer,
You feel the pain no more And you’d tell us, “Don’t be sad.”
Angel’s have come to guide you Please believe, you were no burden
And bring you to Heaven’s door. We’ll always love you, Dad!

Memories we’ll hold so dearly, Our lives have changed forever,
Your smile, warmed our hearts. Since the day you passed away.
And through our lives you’ll live, In Heaven you’ll be waiting
You’ve touched so many parts. To meet us again someday.
