It was a sudden parting,
Too bitter to forget,
Those who loved you dearly
Are the ones who can’t forget.
Your life was one of kindly deeds,
A helping hand for other’s needs
Sincere and true in heart and mind
Beautiful memories left behind.
We often sit and think of you
And think of how you died,
To think you could not say Goodbye
Before you closed your eyes.
God gave us strength to bear it
And courage to fight the blow,
What it has meant to lose you,
God alone will ever know.
The blow was hard, the shock severe,
To part with one we loved so dear,
Our loss was great, we’ll not complain
But trust in God to meet again.
