We little knew that morning that God would call your name,
In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone,
For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.
You left us special memories, for which we'll never part
God has you in his keeping, we have you in our hearts.
Our family chain is broken now, and nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.
