We thought of you with love today,
but that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday,
and days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
I often speak your name.
All we have are memories and
your picture in a frame
Your memory is our keepsake with
which we'll never part
God has you in His keeping and
we have you in our hearts.
