There is a link death cannot sever,
Love and remembrance last forever.
Heavy are our hearts today,
Memory brings you back once more,
To the time when you were with us,
To the happy days of yore.
Gone is the face we loved so dear,
Silent is the voice we loved to hear;
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach,
Sweet to remember him who once was here,
And who, though absent, is just as dear.
