Our family circle has been broken link has
gone from our chain;
But though we are parted for a while,
We know we will meet again.
Sometimes it’s hard to understand why
certain things must be, but there is a reason
for it all, beyond our power to see.
The cover of life’s book is closed for one we loved so well;
But the loving deeds of by-gone days are what the pages tell.
The blow was hard, the shock severe;
We never thought your death was so near.
But only those who have lost can tell
The pain of parting without farewell.
