I long to hold your hand today
And speak just for a while
To tell you of my stories true
And see once more your smile

Cruel are the days
And sad are these times
When familiar faces pass our way
And we’re just left behind

Your bravery, your honesty
And all that was in between
Your kindness and your gentleness
They didn’t go unseen

Now your chair sits empty
And your bed lies cold at night
But with memories and times gone by
I’ll keep you here right by my side
