We think about you always,
We talk about you still,
You have never been forgotten,
And you never will.

And there you will remain,
To walk and guide us through our lives,
Until we meet again.

No time to say goodbye,
Our hearts still ache in sadness,
And secret tears still flow,

No one will ever know.
