elevated e8flX A golden heart stopped beating,
elevated e8flX Hard working hands at rest,
elevated e8flX It broke our hearts to see you go,
elevated e8flX God only takes the best.
elevated e8flX They say that memories are golden,
elevated e8flX Well maybe that is true,
elevated e8flX But we never wanted memories,
elevated e8flX We only wanted you,
elevated e8flX Your life was love and labour,
elevated e8flX Your love for your family true,
elevated e8flX You did your best for all of us,
elevated e8flX We will always remember you.
elevated e8flX We sat beside your bedside,
elevated e8flX Our hearts were crushed and sore,
elevated e8flX We did our duty to the end,
elevated e8flX ‘Til we could do no more.
elevated e8flX In tears we watched you sinking,
elevated e8flX We watched you fade away,
elevated e8flX And though our hearts were breaking,
elevated e8flX We know you could not stay.
elevated e8flX Our lips cannot speak how we love you,
elevated e8flX Our hearts cannot tell what to say,
elevated e8flX But God only knows how we miss you,
elevated e8flX In our heart you will always stay.
