Don't think of him as gone away
his journeys just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one
Just think of him as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years
Think of how he must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away
And think of him as living
in the hearts of those he touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and he was loved so very much
