In Remembrance of Departed Loved Ones
So tender are our memories of you.
Bravely we smile, these thoughts so lead us to do.
Knowing this is what you would want of us, too.
And with the delicate reminiscing
we become mindful that life does not end.
Old dreams to new
Knowledge to wisdom
Sacrifices to a better today
Yes, we do honor and cherish you,
These precious memories, too.
For now we live on
And you are alive
in our hearts
As long as we remember.
