Always in your Heart
Picture me as I was, Full of life and love.
Although not with you now, I’m watching from above.
I know how much you miss me, And I miss you too.
It was my time to leave, As each of us will do.
Although not in your arms, I’m always in your heart.
The precious love we shared, means we’re never far apart.
