We thought of you today,

But that is nothing new,

We thought about you yesterday

And days before that too,

We think of you in Silence,

We often speak your name,

Now all we have are memories

And your picture in a frame

Your memory is our keepsake

Which we’ll never part

God has you in his keeping,

We have you in our hearts
